The 1996 United States presidential election in Kansas took place on November 5, 1996, as part of the 1996 United States presidential election. Voters chose 6 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Kansas was won by Senator Bob Dole (R-KS) over President Bill Clinton (D), with Dole winning 54.29 percent to 36.08 percent by a margin of 18.21 percent. Billionaire businessman Ross Perot (Reform Party of the United States of America-TX) finished in third, with 8.62 percent of the popular vote,[1] a sharp decline from 1992, when Perot captured 27 percent of the state’s votes and held George H.W. Bush’s victory margin to just over five percentage points. As of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last election in which Atchison County voted for a Democratic presidential candidate.[3]

With 54.39% of the popular vote, Kansas proved to be Dole's second strongest state in the 1996 election after Utah.[4]
