There are many high stakes positions at the community, state and federal levels that need your vote. For some people, this brings a feeling of excitement and empowerment. For others, it creates tension or confusion. I’d like to help alleviate some of the tension and confusion if you are a person who is wondering how to sift through the propaganda.

Being the best informed voter allows each one of us to go to the polls and make our mark knowing that we have selected the most qualified in our mind. John Quincy Adams made a statement years ago that resonates with me, “Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost”.

Here are several websites that may help you make an informed decision.

https://ballotpedia.org/Kansas_State_Senate_elections,_2016
-- Provides information on senate positions in your area.

Also, another hot Kansas topic is whether to retain the Kansas Supreme Court Justices. There is much at stake from school finance to the death penalty. A plethora of information is at our fingertips. Make the most informed decision by searching and digging a bit, then go out and cast your vote.

Happy Voting!
