Kansas

Kansas’s congressional delegation and the state legislature have been consistently held by Republicans since at least 2000. Nevertheless, redistricting in the state has been contentious in recent history, mostly due to tension between factions of Republicans in the state legislature. Kansas is a 2020 target for the NDRC – we are targeting the state House.

1 Redistricting Decision Makers

The redistricting process is controlled by different elected officials in each state. Knowing who they are and when to vote for them is the key to creating a fairer redistricting process. State legislative and congressional lines in Kansas are drawn by the state legislature. The governor can veto the plans. The plan for state legislative districts must be submitted to the Kansas Supreme Court for approval.
