Sharing is Caring:

Get Involved in the Political Process

Political activism is not just for those with know-how, money, or connections. Anyone can get involved in the political process. Begin by tracking your Congressional legislators’ voting activity. In Kansas, find your state legislators’ voting record at www.kslegislature.org. Other resources available through the legislative website include:

  • Search for bills by keywords or phrases
  • Track a bill through the legislative process
  • Listen to House and Senate sessions live

There is also a Kansas legislative hotline (800-432-3924) for finding out about legislative activity, including the introduction of bills, sponsorship, amendments, status, etc. To keep tabs on how your tax dollars are being spent, visit KanView, an “online solution that brings better visibility, openness, and accessibility to state government financial activity for Kansas taxpayers.” KanView data is presented as revenues or expenditures by the Kansas Department of Administration.

Make sure you let your state and federal legislators know where you stand on issues that are important to you.
