There's also a major constitutional amendment ballot issue, proposed by Republicans in the Kansas Legislature, that would limit the governor's regulatory power.
For U.S. Senate, Republican Sen. Jerry Moran is running for reelection against Democrat Mark Holland. And every U.S. House seat is up for a vote, with new lines and voters thanks to redistricting.
Kansas will elect statewide offices from treasurer to secretary of state. KCUR is paying close attention to the Kansas Attorney General's race between Democrat Chris Mann and Republican Kris Kobach, who's attempting a political comeback.
