When voters head to the polls for the Nov. 5 election, they’ll face a question on whether to approve an amendment to the Kansas Constitution.

The question is about the 2020 census. At the heart of the issue is whether the state should count college students and military personnel at their permanent residence, rather than where they live at the moment.

A “yes” vote would stop the state from adjusting the Census numbers, saving an estimated $835,000.
