General Election 2016 Endorsements

RainbowCrowdDear Equality Kansas members, allies and supporters –

Equality Kansas, when making endorsements, considers a number of factors in weighing our decisions. In order of importance, we consider:

1. Voting record as a public official;
2. Membership in Equality Kansas, or whether a candidate is a member of the LGBT population;
3. Responses to policy questionnaires sent to all candidates immediately after the June filing deadline;
4. Public statements regarding LGBT equality issues.

Most endorsements decisions are relatively simple, especially for incumbents: They either vote with us or against us.

For newcomers, their questionnaire responses are key to our decision making process. We also consider voting records in prior offices held when a candidate is running for a different or higher office.

While we will consider public statements made by candidates, we never base our endorsements on private assurances of support.

The following list includes all contested Legislative races in Kansas.  Please note that we do not endorse in uncontested races, nor do we endorse in races where we either lack information on candidates or where we believe no candidate will represent the interests of the Kansas LGBT population. Candidates are not advised in advance of our endorsement decisions.

No matter who you vote for, get out and vote! Nothing changes in Kansas without your active participation.
