Electoral Vote.—The first presidential election in which Kansas was entitled to representation in the electoral college was that of 1864. At that time the state had two senators and one representative in Congress, and was therefore entitled to three presidential electors, the votes of which were cast for Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson. As the population increased, the number of electors increased in proportion, and since 1864 the electoral vote has been as follows: 1868, 3 for Ulysses S. Grant and Schuyler Colfax; 1872, 3 for Ulysses S. Grant and Henry Wilson; 1876, 5 for Rutherford B. Hayes and William A. Wheeler; 1880, 5 for James A. Garfield and Chester A. Arthur; 1884, 9 for James G. Blame and John A. Logan; 1888, 9 for Benjamin Harrison and Levi P. Morton; 1892, 10 for James B. Weaver and James G. Field; 1896, 10 for William J. Bryan and Arthur Sewall; 1900, 10 for William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt; 1904, 10 for Theodore Roosevelt and Charles W. Fairbanks; 1908, 10 for William H. Taft and James S. Sherman.
