A Republican primary for a Kansas House seat from Topeka will be settled by a special election involving a single polling place where some voters got the wrong ballots.
The polling site at Light of the World Christian Center is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday for the 432 voters eligible to participate.
Those voters were given the wrong ballots when the state's primary primaries took place Aug. 7. The church served as the polling place for two precincts, one in the 52nd House District and the other in the 56th.
Only the 52nd District's Republican nomination is in doubt. Results on Aug. 7 showed physician Shanti Gandhi leading retired naval and State Department officer Dick Jones by 45 votes out of more than 4,000 cast.
