Overseas voting, or federal services voting, is available for military personnel and their dependents as well as civilians and their dependents living abroad. A voter must meet the criteria established by the federal Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act. Voters voting under the UOCAVA are exempt from Kansas' photo ID requirements under the SAFE Act. However, it is important to note that overseas absentee voting is not the same as advance voting in Kansas. Registered voters in Kansas who do not qualify under the federal overseas voting rules may apply for an advance ballot in the county where they are registered and will be subject to the ID requirements.
