Data Request Forms:
Filing for Office
Candidates filing by petition do not pay a filing fee, but many offices have additional fees imposed by the Secretary of State or the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission that are still required at the time of filing. These fees are listed in the 2013 Filing Fees.

Report forms for National, State, and County offices are sent to candidates from the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission.
