General Information

For election-related information or questions, visit the Johnson County Election Office website at www.jocoelection.org or call 913-715-6800.

The website includes information about registering and registration requirements, upcoming and past elections, candidates, voting and advance voting, district maps, voting data, serving as a poll worker, and more.

Voter Registration

Voter registration closes (21) days prior to each election.  You may register to vote at any time, but if a voter registration application is received after the deadline the voter is registered only for succeeding elections.

You must also re-register each time you change your name, address, or party affiliation.

You can find registration information on the Johnson County Election Office website. If you would like to register online, the Kansas Department of Revenue also hosts an online voter registration site that automatically verifies voter eligibility at https://www.kdor.ks.gov/apps/voterreg.

Advance Voting

Advance voting by mail begins 20 days prior to any election, and advance voting in person begins shortly after that.  Anyone may vote in advance — you do not need an excuse to vote early! Vote when and where it is most convenient for you.

You can find advance voting information on the Johnson County Election Office website.

Candidate Information

As a service to our member businesses and to the community, the Lenexa Chamber of Commerce collaborates with other area chambers to compile an online guide containing self-completed profiles from candidates for most local, state, and national elections, along with videos from chamber candidate forums, where you can learn about the candidates’ backgrounds and vision for elected office. The guide also includes approved wording for any ballot issues being submitted to voters.
