Shawnee County Orders Limited Re-vote in Topeka

(Photo by Stephen Koranda)The Shawnee County Board of Canvassers has ordered a limited re-vote in Topeka after a mix-up at a polling place. The supervisor at one Topeka polling place made a mistake that meant dozens of voters received the wrong ballots. One of the races affected is for the 52nd Kansas House District, in which the top two candidates were separated by just 41 votes. Board member Mary Thomas said it seemed fairest for voters whose ballots were affected by the mistake to have a chance to vote again.

Shawnee County election officials will notify the 430 eligible voters about the special re-vote. It will take place on August 28th, but voters can cast ballots early at the Shawnee County Election Office.
