Absolutely—just nowhere within a 500-mile radius of their former official address.

Hum , if there had been a minimum requirement for residency, Paul Davis wouldn't be in the legislature.

Of course they should, as long as I like the candidate that said move benefits. Otherwise, heck no!

This year presented an unusual situation where districts were changed at the last minute and often shifting constituents to another district.

Even if it were not an unusual year I say why put in more red tape. The voters in the district can decide if the recent move is material or not.

We should encourage more candidates not fewer.

No I would have liked to see Terri Lois for a few more terms here

TerriLois is just an embarrassment.

Someone mentioned previously that it would be a good idea to require a year of residency in a district before being permitted to run. I concur.

Gregory is pretty lame. She moved to get a seat in the Kansas Legislature which is at best a part time job.

She is the same troll of such low moral character that she recorded Senator Vicki Schmidit so the conservatives could try to use it against her in the primary. Schmidit is too moderate for the conservatives.

I think -- and I mean this seriously -- it is time to STOP electing crazy obsessed people that want to win at all costs and instead elect people that will put the State of Kansas first.

The obsessed ones only care about their personal interests and will burn bridges and destroy schools if that means they get a favorable spin on their issues which usually entails telling others what morality to follow in your life and what God to pray to…..

I have a bigger problem with Kobach not extending the filing deadline and with reassigning Republican candidates to other districts. Is it unreasonable to expect the Secretary of State to administer elections fairly and without prejudice for political party?

No, they should only be allowed to move during daylight hours... You just knew someone would say it didn't you!

TerriLois and 5 other state reps moved quickly after the Thursday night ruling. And of the six, only 1 legislator -- Pauls -- was legally challenged. It's pretty messed up the way Kansas law defines a qualifying "residence" for a candidate to file for a state office.

I would send a letter to the Secretary of State's office, but I know Kobach has a very busy travel schedule and tends to misplace ... er ... not receive things.

No, and especially TeriLois, at least gets her out of the county!
