God that's that was confusing. Our immediate outpouring good morning name's Andrew. We've talked before are enjoying his war. By ear and for something else and it's nice to see and I know Agassi you yes sap. Today is watch the last day the last data registered to vote for kansans to vote in the prime okay. Jazzed about the primary for the primaries okay now why is it important that we need voting in the prime air. All right so. Last two governor's primary only about 12%. Of Kansas voted and it and then there's so many candidates and a lot of these primaries that they wanted to win by like sometimes 2530%. Of the vote of less than 12% that's boating. So. They will win by fractions of a percent in minutes who gets to go into the general. So for a lot elections like the real election is in the primary cracked so whenever people get to the general know like I hate all these candidates warranted every candidates like there where you right didn't vote in the election that there were tons of candidates. Okay so today is the last day to vote. For the primary are registered voter reg registered and out of our parents are clearly going do that because I'm never vetted in a primary. And I'm now person yet that sad that eat out I have these candidates candidates hot. Yet and there are a bevy of these candidates. So what's awesome is I worked with several different nonprofits and we both it's who caught KS boats dot org senator KS votes are org right now on your phone. Is optimize for your phone and you can just register really created takes less than two minutes ago and you can send an ending you can do that till midnight tonight he should do it right now are okay can also check if your registered so even if you think you're registered about. Even going there check make sure you're registered. You can also text your friends right now give him a call get a bunch of people registered. And that's K as votes. Dot or because there is another one I'm not gonna say you are out that'll confuse anybody on brat kids you know it is run by the secretary of state neither is an auto has a very similar name to this. And if you go to that one and it's got a big picture Crisco lock on it. And you click for the voter registration to hit it a message from the secretary of state of Kansas that says. This item is unavailable where it sounded through December areas and states. You can't. Isn't giving any information as to how to vote in the primaries generally act in the it doesn't give you any help at all feels like he does a lot shooter registered to vote for the primary Ramirez. K as votes dot org is a place where you go it's very clean very clear very simple you click the register I'm looking at right now are back. So because I'm in a register I've never done that have you voted in a primarily from our idea yet as an exciting now explain it to me. Which side the Missouri side or the Kansas side has. Their different the way they handle the primary race. Yet so. Simon name focus on Kansas thing in part about that but like so we have a winner take all kind of primary as I was mentioning so. For example right here in wind Don Johnson counting. You have on the Democrat side have six people and Iran are running to be date US represented for the Democrats for the Democrat and so that means it's possible for them to win with 16% of ago. So they can get just 16% of the vote in the primary and win the nomination. And that he had to choose yes and so it's like a really I mean that's why it's so powerful Turbo and knees now one thing Nantz and I need is in Kansas. We do have closed primaries so mean Jeff to be a Republican and Republican primary to be Democrats vote in the democratic primary. But even on Election Day if year registered as independent which we call unaffiliated. You can walk into the polling Booth and decide which election you wanna vote. You can just declares a Republican or Democrat on that day the vote in either. OK now you would vote for just one not back yet you can only vote one right in Kansas how far is that republic and primary and be like okay. I think the least worst and that's in my particular case yes sad yet I have a question I'm going through this I'm filling and I'm registering to vote right now. It's is where you previously resume to vote at a different address today I mean ever Illinois through this stuff I don't get at all. Secretary of state come and get me anywhere you ever registered about a we registered about Kansas before. It would be maiming Kansas guy and that's actually not like a required fill that it's helpful for their own book keeping a cap on there is it's not illegal to be registered in two places it's illegal to vote and to. Thank you very much like every basic is seems like you know it feels like voting you've got to have your I'm not somebody who can. Get my ducks in a row and have them do what I wanted to do and it feels like voting now you really do have to do. I know there was like some ruling handed down reason lane. For Kansas but and I remember that it seemed to be a lot. More complex that to get registered and now it's easier because of that ruling. Yes so Kansas actually enacted some of the strictest voting laws in the nation actually that the worst since the Jim Crow era. And recently just about a month ago a federal court ruled that Kansas has unconstitutionally. Suppressed voters. And that means actually the last governor election and 2014. Was unconstitutional. And so right now this year were gonna have to ACLU is has election monitors there's an election hotline if you have any problem getting registered. Or voting. You can call our hotline from the ACLU and you can just do that of ACLU Kansas but also there's a federal judge. Monitoring me Kansas elections because voter suppression and so bad. So I think to consider is this year you'll be voting in what could be called the first legitimate election in five years in the state of. While that's weird to think about I'm just watching you Dana asked him just as as I wiring in Iran and hot. And I like to do this work in this is actually. By the important thing you value out of it make sure you get the right candidate for whichever party you wanna represented and that's way to do it is right here in the primaries. Yes and in so many young people don't vote and because of that even if you have a great candidate they get in there and they can't work for the issues we care about because young people don't vote in the camera elections. Like right now all the candidates they know if you vote in primaries and I don't know if you vote regularly. They look at your record in if you don't vote. He don't give a damn what you think there's no reason for them well to an end so for example the last governor election and fourteen. Less than 14%. Of 825 girls voted and so whenever it comes down to a budget crisis that I could do we screw over all we are no more college kids are theories their tuition relief because services Raikkonen I'm batting because they're not voting in a great big industry someone over you screw over the people. Because they are speaking out they're not lobbed a squeaky wheel can't see how that's why I L I. And it's always senior citizens is out blazes about Medicare air in and if you look at the average age of people in congress it's ridiculously high and it is refreshing to see somebody a little under fifty in the mirror trying to push. For people to your registered to votes that they you very much for being I don't young naive as there are only aware eight passing it in passing Mary M farms I mean that's why my wire erratic. Euros around now he's back he's not a question their car evolves very he's the guy he's the Barents seas he's he'd leave the whisperer Davis Hammett is joining us it is. Cheney as the boats dot org yes is that website so registered to vote in the primaries. As an that is the most important. Which none of us including myself other than you'd Davis have you voted in a primary meaning they never have. I've voted in a primary have voted Dem primary a long time and that's the truth right and it's like I gotta stop. I got a step on up yeah you know it's like I diner and I know we all felt like memorizing hidden element she's really felt like the moral arc of the universe bends towards you know. Progress and it seems like I think we stop fighting fork as we had it so go we got disengaged maybe. I am very welcome any primary issue is the most important thing ever. And you can't just roll over and give up this is a feeling about it and got used to attract. Now if I voted in the general election before says the tax thing does that mean I am registered for the primary as well now. So. You can check go to KS votes are I was as an alternate Jann Carl action and year information. If you. You might. Be registered if you think you're registered or not you should check. Which you can direct yes those are organs just click check my registrations a guy and when you typing your naming your birthday. If you're if nothing pops up in that means you're not registered you should go Henry. And and that is today's the deadline. On the can't decide to vote in the perimeter is you have to be registered. And you're not registered you not letting in the primaries you don't get a say as to who that and will be in the election. Well I got my car registered in Kansas on I moved here I went over today DMV after and and try to get a driver's resolute Limas and saying. If I have an out of state license I need to go get that corrected today before I can register to vote. So. Check if your address is up today you can also update your address but actually Kansas we do have. Voter ideal but you can use an out of state ID can use a student ID also I'm duke and yeah it does now I. Joining us. Zain is Hamad bio and and if you're a college students say you live in Missouri and I are going to college at KU or something like that. You can actually be registered because you're a resident while you're a college student in Kansas so if you wanna vote and he's really important this really important gubernatorial election. Which by the way this is the first democratic. Governor primary we've had over twenty years and kind of a funny note is that the last time. That there was a democratic primary. Fred Phelps from the west Borough Baptist Church literally Democrats citing Democrats I guess where do you plan on building candidates they just threw someone in their so that Fred Phelps was in their candidate right. But it's really the first competitive primary on the Democrat side since 1992. Which was an election that the democratic candidate John Fannie went on to win. She won by less than 2000 votes are back and last year and it's when he sixteen election estate wrapped one by one vote. In the prime of wine but I went out so we took your vote matter being. Are your deductible you really really not right I mean yeah in the primaries. So if you would like to get registered. She vote in the primaries. Today's your last day on the Kansas. I know you're Wednesday XKS about that or what what about missourians they have a little more time. This is where I'm not candidacy yeah yeah and I. I don't Jane is like John asked me out bizarre. Food. I know if you Google Missouri voter registration you do have on the Missouri side there's a website also where you can in a driver's license hammering. Something equivalent yes OK and that's not their heads and then I borrow heavily concentrated and online cans as yet it's just love you Missouri vastly easier not a lot of love over the last couple I have to stay here right Kansas does need money although Missouri can use and have tea. But definitely on the Kansas side OK labs they register now the primary I can't help our kids votes dot org. I I hit it arrived I cannot get over the fact that since that the judge found it that technically that's one of our team governor election months. Unconscious on the hot unconstitutional. For his state of prides itself on being buried constitutional it's kind of funny and weird. That hasn't been talked about a lot actually. And off I mean not aware he had it should be something I think we talk about I don't think about that the secretary of state it's ironic identical or alive thinks that run for governor but whatever it's fun school it's cooler talk about. Has emerged about that is correct. Register is now should I registers independent. So if you are redshirt yet so if you are registered as independent which sexiest unaffiliated brown just means you're not affiliated with any party let. On you can't vote in the primary but if right now if you look at your voter registration if you see unaffiliated. Again as I mentioned earlier like you can just go into the poll and say I wanted to declares a Republican or Democrat to vote in the primary. And then he just like totally hate the fact that your affiliate with a party then in September you can against receiving independent. And once sure even if you're registered no party. You can in in the general election in November you can vote for. Rat of course obviously yes you can vote remember Eli GAAP. Some of that there was a Missouri is already and then apparently I. Too late for Missouri's and I application submitted everybody. Nice to see here and yak you're really equal you come nine with the Phillies are. And is exactly as I said date yeah times while we need to be jail time out. Yes hey and remember that year vote alone you can amplify that right now. I give you text or call tending your friends you could get them to vote and also. No one even knows the candidates in primaries usually guess I don't if you just tell your friends like it I really like this candidate they're probably gonna vote presidency can amplify your vote. A whole lot by getting any. I. They can't really matters here is our kids is telling you all are. We learned that that the like I doubt that's why I love that he makes my motto he wouldn't know anything about that I can't tell him. I yet you know you look like dude does it look like the lead singer glass feels he can't I can't CF yeah. I don't know that I I think it's a scenario like white Arab blond hair and countries like at all. Kapalua yeah yeah yeah blonde blue I can felons voting Kansas. So felons can vote once they are off the papers you know every paper yet aways so once you get a felony charge you're actually deleted off of the voter rolls and then if you like it out of prison when she served parole or probation when you don't with all of that. You can re registered about our hair. We I. Busy at asking the question here huge load of crap that they hear it appears that maybe Wendy we elect enough candidates. Ranked. Anyway joining us and is Kansas boats dot org. Friday there aren't. The vote for the primary has an added. I don't know if there's like some write in against yarder that we can like progress that's fine by me on my sleep the other way. Right can't there is a primary against Yoder there's two candidates running and that election. Does that. Then again there's a primary offense so it gives him Kansas congressional districts are you where Kevin Yoder is federal represented. And in the Republican Party yes two people running against them. And then there are six Democrats running right has challenged him on who are running in that primary a path and I say that's a big race actually there's going to be. I mean millions and millions and millions of dollars pumped into that race from both sides that we. They have our own what what is he really think it just Democrats really matter then you know you've seen it on a catch it. He seemed weird things are Annika brand why don't we have never talked about primaries before either to be quite honest. Our district so I mean we in though we don't really know because. So few people are voting or anywhere else so for example I love this snare right so Bernie Sanders who are really popular cancer over the last couple years. Whenever he ran for mayor Burlington Vermont. Every once that is totally impossible for him to win. And he shouldn't happen where he had so many people registered to vote for the first time. That he won by a margin that no one could calculate because it was all first time voters learn so that's the kind of like magic back and have been. Whenever. He Ers are now owners first time voters and engagement is the same. And that all around as you can bake break the projection models of more people show up basically like I have no idea what's possible if people showed up to about exactly. I hear all the time and in and I'm talking like presidential election. I'm not even talking you know. By eight. Yearly alien nanny again like our our desk and you know represented and is urgently how do you like my brother hasn't netted an I don't know how long. I mean there's so many people that just doubt. Yet in just a regular general election. Not even necessarily that or are you now primaries and his or 78. Yeah. Yes I mean it's like. Whenever you look at it and you think how our politics like this why Arab politics so different and the people around us it's because most of our country doesn't vote for nearly half of our country never vote brain. And that explains why we have we have. Really yeah it really does is it doesn't mean we welcome that's representative of the people of this country and just as a representative of the people that actually go out and dropped. Which is not obvious most of the country well right exactly and anyway Davis thank you and I appreciate and man yeah I. I've read other primary Ahmadinejad added there right now I'm sorry are distinctly. Hillary won it. On the Kansas on down the you know yeah so there's a good chance he indicated loose or whoever the person may be yeah yeah. All right all right TJ has announced that our emir targets let's check your rhetoric and expressed right now. I don't have any adverse. Do you do it.
