Party Changes before Primary are Limited

June 1st Deadline

A new law passed in 2014 by the Kansas Legislature prohibits party members from switching parties during a period beginning on the candidate filing deadline (Noon on June 1st) through the date when the results of the August primary are certified.

Registered voters who are affiliated with a party may not file paperwork to change their party affiliations from June 1st through August this year.

A registered voter who is unaffiliated may, however, affiliate with a party during this period and when voting at the primary or requesting an advance ballot.
