I do not agree with any barriers to vote, we need people to vote not to suppress it. I don't trust electronic voting machines and always ask for a paper ballot. I agree with automatically registering people to vote when they become 18 and offering more polling locations. If we as Americans tout that our veterans fought for our ability to vote than we should be use it, 25% of voter turnout is just sad.
I want to expand Medicaid. The Wellington hospital closed down because of many things but if people can't pay their medical bills and get the proper care. Our rural areas are in jeopardy because medical bills have gotten so out of hand that people can't afford it.
The gun laws are mostly fine right now. I am a gun owner but assault guns should not be in the hands of non-military people. My husband has a SKS and I've never seen him use it because it isn't necessary.
Bipartisan is the key, the Kansas legislature is made of mostly Republicans and a bipartisan committee needs to be in charge.
Yes, the bipartisan system needs to work for the people and be transparent. If representatives work for the people the people should know what bills are being debated.
NO! My sister's mother in law is a foster care social worker and she works super hard with outdated equipment, she does her best with what she has. The kids of Kansas are our future so treat them with the respect they deserve.
Including more women, races, and genders in the legislative, courts, police and leaders.
There has got to be common ground that we can all come together on. The kids of Kansas should be the first priority.
Yes, my district is 90% lower economic class and I am within that district, the incumbent lives within the 10% of the upper economic and does not vote in accordance with the majority of her voters. I would redistrict my area to include 100% of common economic neighborhoods.
