We have several races where you can make a difference, including re-electing Governor Kate Brown and replacing Republican Greg Walden with Jamie McLeod-Skinner in Congressional District 2.

We also have critical issues on the ballot, including an anti-immigrant measure that would repeal Oregon’s Sanctuary State law and a proposal to restrict access to safe, legal abortion in our state.

A Message to Kansas Voters

Your vote this fall is important to Kansas!

We have a chance to elect Laura Kelly for Governor (and to STOP Kris Kobach) this year. Public polling shows the race a dead heat between Kelly and Kobach, with an independent candidate trailing far behind but threatening to play the role of a spoiler if we do not maximize the votes of Democrats. That's why we need your vote.

We have a chance to send multiple Democrats to Congress to assure a Democratic majority in the House. For the first time in recent memory, we have strong candidates in all four of our congressional districts. Both the Third and Second Congressional Districts have received national attention as potential pickups for Democrats, and national Republicans have been concerned about all four districts—so concerned that John Boehner came to Kansas to fundraise.

(Democratic candidates to represent Kansas in the US Congress: 1st Congressional District: Alan LaPolice, 2nd Congressional District: Paul Davis, 3rd Congressional District: Sharice Davids, 4th Congressional District: James Thompson)

We have a chance to win down-ballot statewide races and make gains in the state legislature. We have a chance to pick up seats on county commissions and the State Board of Education. Democrats are poised to make historic gains in Kansas. Find a complete list of our candidates at https://kansasdems.org/2018candidates

Democrats can win in Kansas, but we need your help to make those victories happen.

Even if you voted from abroad in the past, if you haven't yet requested your ballot this year, you still need to do so to make sure you can vote. Just go to votefromabroad.org, fill in the Federal request form, print, sign and send it in to your local election office here in Kansas.
