WHAT IS "STUPID TUESDAY?"
When we started It's Time to Fix Stupid, we thought long and hard about how we were going to select our targets.
No, we didn't. The idea of "Stupid Tuesday" popped into our heads almost immediately.
The process is simple. It's very much like the real election process--except you won't have Kris Kobach running around trying to keep you from voting.
Of course, rules are made to be... completely ignored by stupid people, making it that much harder for us to do our jobs:
The person nominated had to be: a) A current member of the Kansas House of Representatives; b) A former member of the Kansas House trying to win back his/her former seat; or c) A first-time candidate running for the Kansas House who has already distinguished themselves by embarrassing the state;
When the gavel sounded on June 19th, Kansans had nominated 16 candidates for this year's "Stupid Tuesday".
When the balloting ended Sept. 30, voters chose one candidate from each Congressional District. The top vote-getter in each Congressional District, as well as the top overall vote-getter, are our prime targets in the 2018 election cycle. Other nominees are prioritized in order of votes received as resources are available.
