Last November, nearly two dozen mail-in ballots cast by disabled voters got tossed away in Sedgwick County.
Some state officials say local election authorities misread a technicality in state law, and the votes could have been counted.
Now Kansas lawmakers are pushing through bills aimed at wiping out any confusion — and making sure that people who have trouble filling out their own ballots can still vote by mail.
One bill aiming to clarify the law has passed the Senate. Another measure drew no opposition in a hearing in the House on Monday.
