(RILEY COUNTY, KS - November 1, 2022) Yesterday, the Riley County Clerk’s Office was notified of a clerical error in the local redistricting map. Four streets in the area near Sunset Cemetery in Manhattan were placed in the 67th state district instead of the 66th: Stratton Circle, Edgerton Avenue, Meadowmere Court, and Westview Drive. This redistricting error caused the incorrect state representative candidate ballot to be issued for those residents. A total of 101 registered voters live in the redistricted area and 10 have already cast their ballots during advance voting. These 10 voters had the opportunity to vote for state representatives in the 67th District, when they should have voted in the 66th District.
The clerical error has been corrected and the remaining 91 voters will receive the ballot for the 66th District in the state representative race. The 10 people who have already cast their ballot will not be eligible to vote again. Riley County staff reviewed redistricting maps again to verify accuracy.
The 67th District includes a total of 16,081 registered voters who are choosing between Mike Dodson (Rep) and Kim Zito (Dem) for State of Kansas Representative. The 66th District Representative is Sydney Carlin (Dem) who is running uncontested in the 2022 election. Candidates have been notified of the error.
