Primary elections today; KASB urges voter participation

Kansas voters in the Republican and Democratic primaries today (Tue. Aug. 4) will set the stage for the November general election contests.

KASB and other education organizations urge Kansans to vote. KASB does not endorse candidates in political races but does provide information for voters on candidates’ positions and education issues.

Here is a link to KASB’s “Overview of Kansas Public Education Issues 2020.”

To find out where you can vote, visit this link on the Kansas Secretary of State’s office website.

Below are links from organizations that often deal with education issues and have endorsed candidates.

In some cases, the results of the primary elections may not be immediately known because of the increase in absentee, mail-in balloting. The general election is Tue. Nov. 3. Every seat in the Kansas House and Senate, half of 10 positions on the State Board of Education, all four of Kansas’ U.S. Representative positions and one U.S. Senate position are on the ballot.
