Kobach: No Significant Election Problems During Kansas Primary

Secretary of State Kris Kobach says the voting in yesterday’s primary election went smoothly across Kansas, with no significant problems.But one issue that remains is how many Kansans cast provisional ballots after a judge allowed 17,000 previously suspended voters to take part in the election.

The provisional ballots from those voters will be hand counted in the coming days. Kobach says he does not expect any issues handling those extra votes.

“In a big county like Shawnee or Johnson or Wyandotte, you’re going to have thousands of provisional ballots anyway. It’s not really a big deal if you have a few hundred more,” says Kobach.
It’s possible that an increased number of provisional ballots could change the outcome of a very close race, but Kobach says that’s unlikely.
