Currently Kansas law provides voters three ways to cast their ballot:


Advance Voting in Person - voters may advance vote in person up to 20 days before any election in the office of the Atchison County Clerk.


Atchison County will begin Advance Voting in Person on Monday, October 23, 2023.


Daily hours at the Atchison County Courthouse are 8:30 am to 5:00 pm  

Monday thru Friday.


The Atchison County Clerk's Office will be open extended hours for advance voting in person.

Please check back for dates and times.


Advance Voting in Person will end at noon 

on Monday, November 6, 2023.


Advance Vote by Mail – voters may request a ballot by mail upon completion of an advance ballot application.  A separate application must be submitted for each voter for each election.  Ballots and return envelopes will be mailed to voters beginning up to 20 days before the election (Wednesday, October 18, 2023).   The last day to apply for advance ballots by mail is 7 days prior to any election (Tuesday, October 31, 2023).  If cast ballots are mailed back to the Clerk’s Office, they must be postmarked (hand cancelled) on or before Election Day.  Cast ballots may also be returned to the County Clerk’s office, or any polling location in Atchison County, by the close of polls on Election Day. 


Get your Application for Advance Ballot by Mail here.


Voters with a permanent illness or disability may request a permanent advance ballot application by clicking the link or contacting the County Clerk’s office at 913-804-6030. On the application, the voter must specify the nature of the permanent physical disability or illness that makes it difficult or impossible for them to go to the polling place to vote.  Ballots will automatically be sent to registered voters with a status of permanent advance prior to every election.  There is no requirement to reapply unless there is a change in your voter registration status.


Election Day in Person – polling locations will be open throughout Atchison County to cast your vote in person on the day of election between the hours of 7:00 A.M. – 7:00 P.M.   Please bring your photo ID. Check your polling place location and voter registration status on VoterView, through the Secretary of State website, or by calling the Atchison County Clerk’s office.
