Kansas House to Vote on Bill Moving Local Elections to Fall

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas House is expected to vote on a measure that would move local elections to the fall in odd-numbered years.  If the chamber approves the latest version of the bill today (THUR), it will go to the governor.  The Senate voted 22-13 on Wednesday to approve the measure, which also would cancel the state's presidential primaries. Legislators have canceled the past five primaries because of their cost, opting for caucuses funded by the Republican and Democratic parties.  The bill also would bar general election candidates from dropping out of a race unless experiencing "severe medical hardship."  Critics of the bill have said it might force elected school board members to take office in the middle of fiscal years, which could disrupt the budgeting process.
