Overseas Voters Told They May Have To Re-Vote

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says about 500 voters living overseas will be told they may have to re-vote in the U.S. Senate race after ballots were mailed to them Saturday.

On Friday, Kobach directed counties to begin mailing overseas ballots to meet the federal deadline.

The ballots will have no Democratic candidate in the U.S. Senate race after the Kansas Supreme Court ordered Kobach to honor nominee Chad Taylor's request to remove his name, since he dropped out of the race.

The ballots that went out Saturday will come with a disclaimer saying a new ballot will come later if Democrats pick a new candidate.
