Voters in two Topeka precincts are being allowed to cast ballots in advance in a limited special election prompted by the distribution of the wrong ballots at one polling place.

The Shawnee County elections commissioner's office is allowing any of the 432 affected voters to cast ballots starting Monday, in person at the office or by mail.

Polls also will be open Aug. 28, the date of the special election, at the Light of the World Christian Center, where the ballot mix-up occurred Aug. 7. It's the polling place for the two precincts, one in the 52nd Kansas House District and the other, in the 56th.

The special election will settle the Republican primary in the 52nd District. Shanti Gandhi, a Topeka physician, leads a three-person race by 45 votes.
