Kobach to add disclaimer to Kansas Senate ballots

The Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says about 500 voters living overseas will be told they may have to re-vote in the U.S. Senate race after ballots are mailed to them Saturday.

The Kansas election official on Friday directed counties to begin mailing overseas ballots under a federal deadline.

The ballots will have no Democratic candidate in the U.S. Senate race after the Kansas Supreme Court ordered Kobach to honor nominee Chad Taylor's request to remove his name. Some Democrats pushed Taylor out to help independent candidate Greg Orman's chances of defeating Republican Sen. Pat Roberts.

Kobach said Democrats are still obligated to pick a new nominee.

The ballots going out Saturday will come with a disclaimer saying a new ballot will come later if Democrats pick a new candidate.
