Article 23: Registration Of Voters

Statute 25-2354: Check of the registration records of voters by chief state election officer or county election officer. (a) Once each calendar year a check of the registration records of voters in the state of Kansas shall be commenced by the chief state election official or the county election officer by comparing such records to the National Change of Address files. A county election officer may complete one or more checks each calendar year. If the chief state election official performs the check, any discrepancies discovered in the check shall be reported to the appropriate county election officer, who shall initiate the confirmation process prescribed by K.S.A. 25-2316c, and amendments thereto, within 45 days. As an alternative to participation in the national change of address program, the county election officer may conduct mass or targeted mailings to registered voters to obtain information upon which to base the confirmation mailings.

      (b)   The chief state election official may adopt rules and regulations to carry out the provisions of this section.
