The Kansas secretary of state's office
says seven counties were late in sending overseas and military
ballots for November's election.
Stevens, Finney, Hamilton, Ellis, Jackson, Marshall and
Wabaunsee were late meeting the requirement that the ballots be
mailed 45 days before the Nov. 2 election.
Secretary of State Chris Biggs says the clerks must accept the
returning military ballots until the 45th day after they were sent.
The Hutchinson News reports that Biggs also urged the clerks in
the seven counties to make reasonable efforts to tell recipients of
late ballots that have until Nov. 8 to submit their ballots.
