Yoder looks to easily secure fourth term in race against Mission Woods Democrat. Republican Congressman Kevin Yoder appeared to have earned a fourth trip to his seat in the House Tuesday with partial results showing him leading Jay Sidie, the Mission Woods businessman, 51-41, as of early this morning. Libertarian Steven A. Hohe had 8 percent of the vote in the race. Hundreds of precincts have yet to report to the Secretary of State’s office, however.
Election Office experiences major delays in reporting Johnson County vote tallies. Johnson County remained the lone county in the state to not have reported tallies from all of its precincts this morning. The Secretary of State’s office sent out a notice at 3:30 a.m. noting that while every other state in Kansas had finished submitting results, Johnson County had reported just 316 of 502. The Election Office didn’t post partial results from in-person advance voting until well after 8 p.m., when it typically posts the results. Johnson County Election Commissioner Ronnie Metsker told The Kansas City Star early this morning that a large number of paper ballots was responsible for the delay.
