This thesis reports the results of a study of the voting behavior of the representatives who were members of the Kansas House of Representatives during the Forty-Second (1961) session, as recorded on selected roll-call votes. These roll-call votes were analyzed in terms of the party affiliation of the legislators and the types of constituencies represented defined in terms of the degree of urbanization of the respective representative's county. These two factors are not the only factors in a causal funnel of voting, but they are significant parts of the situational influences within which each legislator works.
