The Push Is On
On the November ballot, voters will select their candidate for Kansas governor, secretary of state, attorney general, insurance commissioner and treasurer. On the local level, voters will choose their 3rd District congressional representative, their Kansas House representative, the chair of the Board of County Commissioners and candidates for seats for Districts 1, 4 or 5.
Learn about all these candidates by visiting vote411.org. Enter your address, then you can compare the candidates on your ballot.
Several Johnson County (10th district Court) judges will be up for retention as well. Read the recently released Johnson County Bar Association member survey to help inform your decisions about the retention of the judges.
