An impasse in the Kansas Legislature means a later filing deadline for those seeking elective state offices or national offices.
The Kansas Secretary of State’s Office announced the 10-day delay via Twitter on May 10.
Initially slated for June 1, candidates now have until noon on Monday, June 11 to file to run for the state Senate, House and school board and for Congress.
The Kansas Senate and House have yet to agree on redistricting boundaries. Primary elections are still slated for Aug. 7, but those, too, could be pushed back if the Kansas Legislature fails to approve reapportionment boundaries.
