Kansas is holding its primary election on Aug. 2, 2022.

On Aug. 2, Kansas will be the first state in the U.S. to vote on abortion rights after the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Tuesday's election also features primaries for U.S. Senate, U.S. House and governor. Results will begin updating after polls start to close at 7 p.m. CT.

Election Day is here.

Polls open in Kansas at 7 a.m. CT and close at 7 p.m. CT on Aug. 2, although some counties may choose to open earlier and close later.

Kansas has a closed primary system, meaning you have to declare yourself a member of a political party if you want to vote on Republican or Democratic ballots. You cannot switch parties at the polls.

Unaffiliated voters may still vote on ballot questions like the abortion amendment and non-partisan races.

Kansas voters will pick their candidates for governor, U.S. Senate, U.S. House and the state Legislature. Voters across the state will also be asked whether abortion should be removed as a right from the state constitution.
