Democrats in Republican-leaning Kansas are limited to hoping that they'll slow the GOP-dominated Legislature's shift to the right.

Their efforts ahead of Tuesday's election came as conservative Gov. Sam Brownback's allies work to tie them to President Barack Obama.

Legislative races were the mostly closely watched contests because there was no U.S. Senate seat on the ballot and all four Republicans representing the state in the U.S. House were favored to win re-election comfortably.

Republican Mitt Romney was expected to carry the state in the presidential race, as every GOP nominee has done since 1964.

Polls opened at 7 a.m. local time across the state. Secretary of State Kris Kobach was predicting a turnout of 68 percent, with about 1.2 million registered voters participating.
