The economy and health care are on the minds of Kansas voters as they take different positions on re-electing President Barack Obama.
For 42-year-old Topeka resident Jim Clark, the biggest issue is the economy, and he voted for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Clark lost a full-time job as a computer administrator two years ago and has been working temporary assignments since then.
Clark is a registered Republican, but he voted for President Obama four years ago.
Meanwhile, Topeka retirees and registered Democrats Jerry and Barb Estes voted for the president, saying he should be allowed to finish work on his agenda. Barb Estes, a 77-year-old retired nurse, said the federal health care overhaul enacted in 2010 could be tweaked, but the country needed to tackle the issue.
