TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Democratic Party officials say a lawsuit has been filed in Sedgwick County to force officials to give a Democratic legislator who lost a re-election bid the names of voters casting provisional ballots. They said the lawsuit filed Friday by Representative Geraldine Flaharty of Wichita was similar to one filed hours earlier in Shawnee County by Democratic state Representative Ann Mah of Topeka. In Mah's case, District Judge Rebecca Crotty ordered Shawnee County officials to release voter names to Mah and her Republican opponent. Kansas Democratic Party spokesman Dakota Loomis said Flaharty is hoping for a similar order. Flaharty was forced by political redistricting to run against Republican Representative Phil Hermanson of Wichita. He leads the race by 138 votes out of nearly 6,000 cast on Tuesday.
