Voter tips

  • Before you head to the polls, make sure you’re registered to vote. Voter registration deadlines have passed in both states, but you should double check your voter status in Missouri and in Kansas.
  • Speaking of polling places, here’s where to find your voting location in Missouri and Kansasplus early voting in the metro. Take note: Your polling place may have changed since the last time you voted.
  • Both Kansas and Missouri now require photo ID to vote, and the accepted forms of identification differ in each state. If you don’t bring proper ID, you’ll have to cast a provisional ballot.
  • Don't skip out on the judges retention section of your ballot. This year, there are 75 judges standing for retention votes in Kansas, and 52 judges on the ballot in Missouri. Since it can be one of the most confusing parts of the ballot, KCUR's Dan Margolies assembled this helpful guide to making an informed decision when voting for judges.
