KS in Final Stage of Vote Counting     08/14 06:19

   WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas county election officials were set to continue 
reviewing some 9,000 provisional ballots Tuesday as the two candidates in the 
state's tight GOP primary for governor appeared to dig in for a long battle.

   On Monday, more than two-thirds of the state's counties reviewed provisional 
ballots, which are given at the polls to voters when their eligibility is in 
question.

   How to handle such ballots emerged on the first day of canvassing as the 
most contentious issue in the razor-thin race for the Republican nomination for 
governor.

   Secretary of State Kris Kobach led Gov. Jeff Colyer by about 200 votes when 
the vote counting stopped for the day Monday, with 43 counties left to report 
results in the coming days. Fourteen counties were to begin canvassing Tuesday.
