Kansas voters have big, big ballots ahead of them Tuesday.

Here’s the basic info you need to know before you head to the polls.



Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday (Nov. 8) for the 2022 general election. As long as you’re in line to vote by 7 p.m., you will be allowed to cast your ballot.

You will need a photo ID.


Voters need to report to their assigned polling places on Election Day.

You can find your polling place by visiting and typing in your full name and date of birth. You can also search for a polling place for a specific address. Even if you’re confident that you remember where you voted in the last election, it’s wise to double-check just to make sure nothing has changed.

Lawrence Transit is providing free bus rides all day Tuesday to encourage people to vote.

What’s on the ballot?

A lot. A Douglas County Commission seat; a question of whether the county commission should expand to include five commissioners (there are currently three); two state constitutional amendments; numerous state and federal offices; and many judges.

You can see a sample ballot before you go to the polls if you visit and type in your full name and date of birth.

We broke it all down in these two guides that are packed with helpful info:
