Vote by mail 





Registered voters in Marshall County are eligible to vote by mail. To vote by mail you must complete an Advance Voting Application. Your completed application must be received at the Marshall County Clerk's office on the Tuesday prior to the election. 

Submit your application early to avoid delays! 

After you have completed the application, please return it to our office:

Via mail:

Marshall County Clerk
1201 Broadway Street, Suite 2
P.O. Box 391
Marysville, KS 66508

Via fax:

(785) 562-5262

Via email:

A separate application must be submitted for each election, except in the case of permanent illness or disability which requires a different, one-time-only application (see below, Permanent Advanced Voting Status).

Ballots and return envelopes will be mailed beginning 20 days before the election.

After receiving your ballot:

  1. Mark your ballot
  2. Seal the ballot in the envelope provided
  3. Sign the back of the envelope
  4. Return the envelope to the Marshall County Clerk's office or a Marshall County polling place on Election Day

Ballots are due by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. 

Any advance ballot returned by mail and postmarked, or otherwise marked by the U.S. Postal Service, that the ballot was mailed by the close of polls on Election Day shall be eligible for counting if it is received by the 3rd day following the election.

Permanent Advance Voting Status





If you have a permanent illness or disability you may apply at any time to the county election officer for permanent advance voting status. Complete and return the Permanent Advance Voting Application to the Marshall County Clerk's office.

Once you obtain permanent status, the county election officer automatically sends you an advance ballot every election without you having to renew the application each time.

You must specify the nature of the permanent physical disability or illness that makes it difficult or impossible for you to go to the regular polling place to cast a ballot. A permanent advance voting applicant is not required to furnish a physician's records or signature, but you must sign an affirmation on the form. You should be specific as to the nature of the sickness or disability; using "age" or "failing health" is not adequate.

After you have completed the application please return it to our office via email at: 

msctyclk@bluevalley.net

or via mail at:

Marshall County Clerk
1201 Broadway Street, Suite 2
P.O. Box 391

Safeguard Your Advance Ballot





If you are voting by mail, please follow these simple steps to protect the integrity of your ballot:
  • Vote the ballot yourself. Do not let another person tell you how you should vote.
  • If you are physically unable to vote the ballot, be certain that the person assisting you can be trusted and is NOT: with a political campaign; your employer; agent of employer; or officer or agent of a union to which you are a member. 
  • If you do require assistance, an "Affidavit of Assistance in the County of Marshall, State of Kansas " must be completed and you will find it printed on the back of the return envelope.
