Advance Voting

By Mail


To vote by mail, complete an Application for an Advance Voting Ballot by Mail and fax to (913) 791-8931, (913) 791-8932 or (913) 791-8933, or mail to Johnson County Election Office, 2101 E. Kansas City Road, Olathe, KS 66061. A separate application must be submitted for each election unless the voter qualifies for permanently sick/disabled status.

Applications are also available at the Election Office and libraries. Completed applications must be received at the Election Office before 5:00 p.m. on the Tuesday prior to the election.

Applications may be copied. Each voter must sign an application in order to receive a ballot. More than one application may be mailed in the same envelope. You may also scan and email the application to election@jocoelection.org. Applications are accepted any time during the year in which the election is held, although we do not begin to mail out ballots until 20 days prior to each election.

Your voted ballot may be returned by mail or hand-delivered to the election office or a polling location. In order for a mailed ballot to count, the ballot must be postmarked on or before the date of the election and received by the third day following the date of the election, unless additional time is permitted by the secretary of state. If hand-delivered the ballot must be received before 7 p.m. election night at either the Election Office or a polling place. There is a drop box available at the front entrance of the election office. Ballots may not be faxed.
