Topeka, KS (westernkansasnews.com) The concern from local officials across the state is if municipal elections are moved from the spring to the fall and become partisan that military and state employees will be barred from running. State Secretary of State Kris Kobach does not see it the same way.
Kobach says the move is all about increasing voter participation in local elections. Its a change he supports.
Kobach argues voters in the fall are more engage in the process than spring voters.
