The board of Sedgwick County canvassers have approved the counting of more than 1,000 provisional ballots from the primary election.
The results from the canvass will be released today at 4:30 p.m.
Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman said there are five races where these provisional ballots could make a difference.
Today's results may break a tie on a local option budget increase in the Andover school district. The results will determine whether or not to raise the Andover local option budget by 1 percentage point, with a mill levy decrease from 2.5 mills instead of 3 mills.
Lehman said three state representatives races are close with less than 30 votes between candidates.
