Please encourage your staff and board to get out and vote in the primary election on Tuesday, August 5.
The airwaves are full of campaign commercials and candidates from one end of the state to the other are busy with last minute efforts to sway primary election voters. Those successful in their efforts will turn their sights to the general election scheduled for Tuesday, November 4.
Here’s what voters will be deciding:
one U.S. Senate seat
all four Congressional seats
all statewide offices
three State Senate seats (to replace retiring Senators)
Federal Races U.S. Senate and 4th Congressional District primary races are two to watch. In the primary race for U.S. Senate, incumbent U.S. Senator Pat Roberts squares off against Milton Wolf. In the primary race for the 4th Congressional District, incumbent Representative Mike Pompeo squares off against former U.S. Congressman from the 4th District, Todd Tiahrt.
Statewide Races Several statewide offices are up for election this year:
Secretary of State
State House of Representatives Races All 125 House seats are up for election this year.
Here’s the rundown:
34 races (33 with incumbent legislators as the candidate) face no opposition in either the Primary or General election, which means they will automatically be serving in the 2015 Legislature.
15 races (12%) have a Primary election only.
63 races (50%) have a General election only.
11 races (10%) have both a Primary AND a General election
