Locally, the current political focus is the general election next month for City Commission, City Council, mayor, school board and school bond matters. However, two state lawmakers have already started the re-election process for next year's election.


Kansas House 60th District Representative Mark Schreiber of Emporia has filed his paperwork for a third two-year term if elected. He says this was the best time to file and get the process started.

76th District Representative Eric Smith of Burlington is also seeking his third term in the House. He has been unavailable for comment.

In the House, 51st District Representative Ron Highland of Wamego has not announced his re-election plans. Nor has 17th District Senator and Senate Vice President Jeff Longbine.

When it comes to the general election next month, advance mail ballots are heading out Wednesday to voters that requested them. Lyon County's second annual offsite vote event will be from 9 am to 1 pm Saturday at Flinthills Mall. Advance voting inside county courthouses begins Monday and ends at noon Nov. 4. The general election is Nov. 5, and KVOE News will have complete election coverage -- including results and reactions -- after the polls close that evening.
