Here is the correct link for the free birth certificate. You need to scroll down to "No citizenship documents" and read that section. There are links to the form and affidavit you will need to complete and submit to Vital Statistics.

Each of the 105 counties in Kansas has a county election officer responsible for conducting all official elections held in the county.

Counties are required to post a Voter Rights and Responsibilities poster (espanol) and Notice to Voters (español) at each polling place on Election Day.

Data
Each county maintains a list of registered voters, and the secretary of state maintains a statewide list. This data is available for purchase by filling out a CVR form.

Assistive Technology
Each county chooses its voting system from a list of equipment certified by the secretary of state. The office also compiles a list of what voting system each county uses.

State law requires that the election process be accessible to all voters. Accessibility may be viewed from three perspectives: language accessibility, polling place accessibility and ballot accessibility. The Secretary of State's website has accessibility information on it. Scroll down to the third paragraph.
