Provisional Ballots Explained


Tuesday's Kansas primaries have come and gone, but there are still a few ballots left to count. With some races too close to call after the initial voting, the race might possibly come down to provisional ballots.


These ballots are kept separate from other ballots and reviewed after the election. These ballots can be rejected if the voter did not provide additional information, an updated signature, or an additional photocopy upon request by the county election officer, or if the information, signature, or photocopy is inconsistent with the information on the voter registration list.


Montgomery County Clerk Charlotte Scott-Schmidt said those who submitted provisional ballots have until August 15th to show their photo identification. A final decision on those ballots will be made by the canvassing board, if necessary, on August 17th.
