 Thomas County, Kansas Welcomes You! is the official web site for Thomas County, Kansas. The purpose of this web site is to provide the people of Thomas County with news and information. On this site you can find information for many departments in the courthouse as well as offsite departments.


This notice covers persons who have applied to register to vote and have not yet provided proof of citizenship.  Due to recent court rulings, if you have applied to register to vote at a Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles office or if you have applied to register to vote using the "Federal Form" voter registration application (as opposed to the standard 'state form') and have not yet provided proof of citizenship, you are registered to vote unless you receive official notice stating otherwise.  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) 460-4500 or the Secretary of State's office at (800) 262-8683.



Thomas County is home to approximately 7,891 Kansans, and
stretches across well over 700 square miles of Kansas prairie.
