TOPEKA - Kansas Democrats are promising to file what they're describing as a formal elections objection aimed at protecting ballot access. The office of House Minority Leader Paul Davis wasn't more specific before a Thursday morning news conference at the Statehouse.
Under Kansas law, an objection is filed with the secretary of state's office, either to challenge an individual candidate's right to be on the ballot or a decision that a candidate isn't qualified.
The candidate filing deadline was Monday, and objections can be filed until Thursday evening.
Such protests will be considered by the State Objections Board, which is scheduled to meet next week. The board is Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, all Republicans.
