Campaign finance reports are required of all candidates except Improvement District and Precinct Committee candidates. Candidates not intending to spend more than $500 on their campaigns may file a notarized Affidavit of Exemption with the office in which they filed for candidacy before the 9th day prior to the Primary Election in lieu of submitting campaign finance reports. These forms are available at the Sedgwick County Election Office and are required to be notarized. The reports for local office are on the Election Office website in the Voting Applications and Forms link. Report forms for County offices are sent to candidates from the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission. The campaign finance report submission dates are listed in the Election Calendar.
Kansas law prohibits campaign signs within 250 feet of the entrance to an advance voting site or within 250 feet of the entrance to a polling place on Election Day [K.S.A. 25-2430].
Additionally, the Cities of Derby and Wichita have ordinances in effect on sign placement, and are available upon request. A Sign Placement Diagram is also available showing drawings of correct and incorrect sign placement within Wichita.
Candidates can appoint Election Day voting observers. The observer must carry a completed Authorized Poll Agents form that has been filed with the Sedgwick County Election Office to present to the election board workers.
