You also have a right to vote if you're in line before the time the polls close. In Kansas, poll workers ask that you limit your time to no more than 5 minutes if someone is in line waiting.

Voters are encouraged to go online to see a sample ballot before heading to the polls.

If you make a mistake, no worries, you can ask for another ballot. Up to 2 replacement ballots are allowed in Kansas.

It is also illegal to take pictures of your ballot in Kansas or in Missouri. You can however, take a selfie of that voting sticker once you’re done.

If you feel intimidated in any way while at the polls, contact a poll worker immediately. You can also file a complaint with the Secretary of State.
