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 or the Secretary of State’s office at (800) 262-8683.

There is STILL a burn ban in effect for Jewell County, Kansas. Open burning of any kind is prohibited. For those that want to do controlled burn of any kind, they need to notify the Fire Chief in their district, and obtain approval before burning. They need to also notify the Jewell County Sheriff's Office so the dispatcher knows about the burning. Burning of any kind without permission is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $2500 and jail sentence of up to one year. This is true whether the fire gets out of control or not.


Effective Monday, February 13, 2017 the Jewell County Clerk’s Office will no longer sell permits and licenses for Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.

This includes all hunting, fishing, big game, vehicle and camping permits and licenses.

You can continue to purchase vehicle park permits when renewing vehicle tags with the County Treasurer!
