“Here’s how fusion voting helps to elevate diverse voices in Kansas”

Op-ed by the leaders of the new United Kansas party. For anyone who has been following the advocacy for fusion voting over the last couple of years, the arguments in the op-ed will be familiar. For example, the new party’s leaders assert: “we will be cross-nominating the major party candidates who best represent Kansas values, without regard to their major party affiliation, to begin to demonstrate that fusion voting can once again bring Kansas together, for progress and prosperity.”

One thing that’s not clear to me from the piece is how applicable Kansas law will treat the new party’s effort to co-nominate one of the major-party candidates. The piece says that the new party will be seeking “to qualify for the ballot in November,” but will state law permit the party to have a ballot line that designates the same candidate who is a nominee of a different party?
