1,500 ballots mailed too late to count in Kansas

September 25, 2020 - 3:06 pm

Election data shows more than 1,500 Kansans did not have their votes counted in the August primary because their mail ballots arrived too late, but many of them were uncounted because voters didn’t mail them on time. 

A 2017 state law that aims to mitigate the impact of mail delays allows ballots postmarked on Election Day to be counted as long as they are received in local election offices within three days.

That means that ballots postmarked on or before Aug. 4 would have been counted had they arrived by Aug. 7.
