632

While senators are not up for reelection until 2024, here’s a look at how the constitutional amendment on abortion performed in each of the state’s Senate districts.

The numbers were provided by Wichita State political scientist Brian Amos after the district-by-district data came available from the secretary of state’s office last week.

Here are numbers for the House in case you missed them.

The amendment prevailed in 13 out of the state’s 40 Senate districts.

In two districts, the amendment won with more than 60% of the vote. In 11 districts, the amendment won with between 50% and 59% of the vote.

On the other side, the amendment lost with more than 87% of the vote in one district – Senate District 2 – represented by Democrat Maric Francisco of Lawrence.

It lost by between 70% and 79% of the vote in eight districts.

It was defeated by 60% of the vote to 69% of the vote in 12 Senate districts.

Here’s the complete breakdown by each Senate district as they were redrawn during the last legislative session, according to the secretary of state’s office.

Any numbers that add up to more than 100%, attribute to rounding.
