Kansas’ redistricting process falls primarily in the hands of the state legislature, which has been under supermajority control by Republicans for the last decade. Following the 2020 Census, Democratic Governor Laura Kelly approved state legislative maps that were upheld by the Kansas Supreme Court.
However, Republicans used their supermajorities in both legislative chambers to override the governor’s veto and enact gerrymandered congressional districts, which ignored public input and split communities to entrench statewide Republican control. Kansas is an NDRC target in 2022—it’s time to break Republican supermajorities in the state House and Senate and protect fair maps champion Laura Kelly.
For the 2022 elections in Kansas, we are targeting the following: Governor, State Senate, State House

How Our Fight Continues
Thanks to the grassroots movement for fair maps, we have maps in place that are far more fair than they would have been if Republicans had been allowed to gerrymander unchecked this past redistricting cycle. But if the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that our fight to protect free and fair elections is far from over. Redistricting has always been part of the larger fight to protect our democracy. The stakes are far too high to stand by the sidelines.
