ABOUT
KANSAS

2010 Census Reapportionment: As it has since 1992, Kansas will remain at 6 electoral votes through the 2020 presidential election.

Kansas entered the Union in January 1861, a little over two months prior to the start of the Civil War and seven years after it became a territory under the aptly named Kansas-Nebraska Act. The state is strongly Republican in presidential elections; it hasnít voted for a Democrat since 1964, when Lyndon Johnson won in a landslide. In 2012, Mitt Romney won by 60% to 38% over Barack Obama. Kansasí population growth has been slower than the nationís as a whole in recent decades, as population trends have been away from rural locations to more urban centers. As a result, the state has lost electoral influence: From a peak of 10 electoral votes in the early part of the 20th century, the state has been reduced to six today.
