Advance voting in person is now underway in Kansas. You don’t have to wait until August 2 to cast your ballot in the primary election. In most counties you can go right to the County office and cast your vote now. Some counties – Sedgwick and Johnson in particular – have satellite locations.
Contact your county election officer to find out when and where to vote in your county.
And if you’re wondering how important this primary election is, we recommend you read this analysis by Rod Haxton, editor of the Scott County Record.
As Haxton put it so well:
“Ultraconservatives in the legislature and the Koch funded machine saw an opportunity for a change in Kansas and they seized it. They did it by outspending their opponents and by making outrageous and false claims that, apparently, were effective with an uninformed public.
Four years later, ignorance is no longer an excuse.
We’ve had ample time to measure the failures of the Brownback Administration and the Republican leadership in our legislature. They have chosen to take us down a bleak path that underfunds our schools and our infrastructure. Because of their policies we are putting at risk our children, our elderly and the poorest among us.”
So, there’s no excuse. You have the chance to make a real difference in Kansas for the future of our children, for our communities, and for our state as a whole. And you can make that difference today!
