15. Judge's recount unsuccessful

It came down to one vote.

District Magistrate Judge Kevin Campbell's requested recount of ballots Wednesday morning gained the magistrate five votes toward retaining his seat in Kearny County, but left him one shy of keeping his position by a count of 625 ?yes' votes to 626 ?nos.'

The Kearny County canvassing board certified the results Wednesday afternoon, without the board finding reason to request another recount, said Kearny County Clerk Jana Swank. It's a move that ensures the election can't be counted again, but that doesn't mean Campbell's out of options.

According to Kansas law, any resident allowed to vote in the election can file a motion to contest the election within five days of the county clerk certifying the abstract of votes and sending the abstract to the Secretary of State's Office.

Swank said she likely would certify the abstract Friday, which would allow anyone eligible to vote in the election - whether they actually voted or not - five business days to contest the election in district court.
