Kansas and direct democracy

Kansas enjoys just two of the available seven forms of direct democracy. If the General Assembly places a constitutional amendment on the statewide ballot, voters can ratify or reject it. Secondly, Kansas is one of just 18 states nationally with the right of statewide recall.

Executive authority in the state rests with the governor, currently Kathleen Sebelius.

Kansas is named after the Kansas River which flows through it, from the French "Cansez", by explorer Étienne de Veniard, Sieur de Bourgmont, and after the Kansa tribe, who inhabited the area. Residents of Kansas are called "Kansans."
