Officials in a northeast Kansas county are moving forward with certifying the vote in a state House race amid a legal battle involving another county.

The Osage County Commission began reviewing provisional ballots Monday and planned to certify local election results. The move will affect the 54th House district race.

Democratic Rep. Ann Mah of Topeka trails Republican challenger Ken Corbet by 27 votes out of nearly 11,000 cast. The district covers parts of three counties.

Mah successfully sued Friday to force Shawnee County to turn over the names of voters who cast provisional ballots, hoping to pick up enough votes to close the gap.

Corbet was hoping Osage County officials would release a similar list, but the county commission decided against it and plans to certify its results.
