    Leading Groups Urge Voters: Protect Fair Courts, Make Informed Choice in Judicial Election

    TOPEKA – After a series of recent political attacks on the courts, leading organizations representing the Kansas legal community joined with the Kansas League of Women Voters today to urge voters to make an informed choice in the November 4 retention elections for Kansas Supreme Court Justices and Court of Appeals judges.


    The Kansas Bar Association, Kansas Association for Justice, Kansas Association of Defense Counsel, Kansas Appleseed and the League jointly issued the following statement:

    "On Election Day, Kansas voters will fulfill a significant responsibility; we will vote in the retention elections for Supreme Court Justices. Unlike legislative races, these are not meant to be partisan political contests. Our democracy rests on a foundation of fair courts, free from political interference. Judges running for retention must be evaluated for their ability to impartially apply the law in all cases. We urge voters to seek out information, available from the 2014 Kansas Judicial Review Survey, on the qualifications of justices and judges running for retention this year, before casting their votes on November 4."

    The groups stressed the importance of casting an informed vote, and the League of Women Voters invites Kansans to visit the Kansas Judicial Evaluation Committee’s (KJEC) website at to learn more about the judicial retention elections and evaluate how Supreme Court justices and Court of Appeals judges are doing in the state. The KJEC is a non-partisan coalition of practicing Kansas attorneys, Kansas law professors, Kansas court professionals, representatives from civic groups and citizens dedicated to preserving the impartiality of Kansas courts and the promotion of an informed citizenry.


    The Kansas Bar Association. Founded in 1882, the Kansas Bar Association is a voluntary professional association with 7,000 members, including lawyers, judges, law students, and paralegals. The KBA is dedicated to advancing the professionalism of its members, encouraging public understanding of the law, and promoting the effective administration of our system of justice.

The corrals are located six miles north and one and a quarter miles west of Canton.

    Auctioneer services will be provided by Lyle Leppke and Roger Hiebert, and lunch and concessions will be served by Friends of Maxwell.

    The Department reserves the right to reject any or all bids. All purchases must be paid in cash. Personal checks will be accepted if accompanied by a notarized authorization letter from the issuing bank.

    Buffalo over one year old will be brucellosis and tuberculosis tested and accompanied by a health certificate. Heifer calves will be vaccinated for brucellosis and certificates will be issued. 

    Buyers must pick up buffalo the day of the sale or make arrangements with the refuge manager prior to the sale. Animals become buyer’s responsibility upon settlement on sale day.
