Unofficial Election Results for Kansas Statewide Races

Unofficial Election Results for Kansas statewide races:          

(At this time, there are still precincts that are not recorded, so these are unofficial results.)

The changes that began in the primary elections have carried over to the general election, although Democrats did not experience as many wins in the Senate as some had predicted. As of the results around 2:30 a.m., Democrats picked up one seat in the Senate – Lynn Rogers has won the district held by retiring Senator Michael O’Donnell (R-Wichita).  Two others appear very close with some precincts not final – Denning and Pilcher-Cook.

Democrats appear to have gained 14 seats in the House of Representatives – better than predicted. If the numbers hold, there will be additional Democrats on each House committee.
