Your name will appear on the poll book for your voting location and you will be given a standard ballot.There is nothing further you need to provide unless and until you receive further notice.

If  you have questions concerning your eligibility or this notice you may contact your local county election office at 785-483-4641 or the Secretary of State's office at (800) 262-8683.
