Larry Meeker is the only Democrat who filed for the Kansas State House seat, 17th district. He says staff of the Kansas State House Democratic leader filed his declaration of candidacy in the Secretary of State’s office on the deadline, June 11. But the Secretary of State’s office says it can’t find the form and that he will not be on the ballot. See this story. Meeker is appealing the decision to an administrative body that has the power to alter the decision.
Normally the Kansas primary filing deadline would have been June 1, but it was delayed because of redistricting challenges. The primary is August 7. Thanks to Bill Van Allen for the link.
