The primary election is a partisan election. It is the political party’s opportunity to nominate a candidate to be on the November General Election Ballot.
If you are an unaffiliated voter and wish to vote at the primary you will be asked to declare which party’s ballot you wish to vote. In Kansas that is either a Republican or Democratic ballot. After the election if you don’t want to be affiliated with a party you may re-register through the County Clerk’s office.
Your party affiliation cannot be changed after June 1st unless you are an unaffiliated voter.
If you are registered as a Republican on the date of the election you will be given a Republican Ballot. If you are registered as a Democrat you will be given a Democratic ballot.
