Advance voting-In person

Don’t forget your ID. Each voter must show photo identification before receiving a ballot.

In-person Advance voting, by law, can begin up to 20 days prior to each election. So, show up at the Lyon County Courthouse and vote, it’s that easy

Advance voting-By mail

To vote by mail you must download and print an Application for Advance Voting Ballot (AV1). A separate application must be submitted for each election, except in the case of permanent illness or disability.

A person with a permanent illness or disability may complete an Application for Permanent Advance Application Status. The county election officer will automatically send the voter an advance ballot for every election they are eligible to vote in.
Please return it to our office:

In person or by mail:

Lyon County Clerk’s Office
c/o Election Office
430 Commercial
Emporia, KS 66801

By email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Your completed application must be received at the Election Office before 5:00 p.m. on the Tuesday prior to the election. Submit your applications to avoid delays.

The Election Office will mail your ballot within 2 days of receiving your application. If you receive an application with an address other than the Election Office pre-printed on the mailing side of the application, it could delay or prevent delivery of your ballot.

You may return your ballot in person to the Lyon County Election Office by 7:00 PM on Election Day or to any polling place within the county; or by mail if postmarked by Election Day and received by that Friday after the election to be eligible to be counted.

Voter registration information

To complete a voter registration application and vote in Kansas, you must meet the following constitutional qualifications:

1. Be a resident of Kansas

There is no length of residency requirement in Kansas, but a person must be registered 21 days before the election and must be a resident at the time of registration.

If you move from one county to another within the state, your name is removed from the voter list in the county of former residence and added to the voter list in the county of new residence, either by re-registering in the new county or by completing a driver’s license change of address form. If you move out of the state, your name is removed from the voter list in the county of your most recent registration. You may at any time file a written request with the county election officer to have your name removed from the voter list.

2. Be 18 years of age or older

If you are 17 years old but will be 18 before the next election, you may register to vote. This does not allow you to vote in the primary or at any other election before turning 18.

3. Be a U.S. Citizen

Mail or hand-deliver application to the Lyon County Election Office, 430 Commercial Street, Emporia, KS 66801
