Election officials are expected to release results Tuesday in the Johnson County Commission race popularized by a videotape showing the incumbent stealing his opponent's campaign signs.
Thousands of provisional ballots were counted to decide the race in which incumbent John Toplikar trailed challenger Calvin Hayden by 52 votes. Toplikar had 17,580 votes to Hayden's 17,632.
The race became big news when a videotape posted on YouTube showed Toplikar removing Hayden's campaign signs from a green area along a busy street. Olathe police filed a misdemeanor theft charge against Toplikar.
Another close race is between Kansas Rep. Gene Rardin, a Democrat, and Republican Jim Yonally. Rardin was up 5,384 to Yonally's 5,297, an 87-vote margin.
Kansas legislative races that are closer than 100 votes could change with provisional ballots.
