Key races we're watching

The biggest election in Kansas this year is the governor's race between incumbent Democrat Laura Kellyand Republican challenger Derek Schmidt. There's also a major constitutional amendment ballot issue, proposed by Republicans in the Kansas Legislature, that wouldlimit the governor's regulatory power.

For U.S. Senate, Republican Sen. Jerry Moran isrunning for reelection against Democrat Mark Holland. And every U.S. House seat is up for a vote, with new lines and voters thanks to redistricting.

Kansas will elect statewide offices from treasurer to secretary of state. KCUR is paying close attention to the Kansas Attorney General's race between Democrat Chris Mann and Republican Kris Kobach, who's attempting a political comeback.

Don't forget about judges: You'll see a number of names up for retention votes on your ballot, including six of seven justices on the Kansas Supreme Court — which could determine how far lawmakers could go to restrict abortion rights under the Kansas Constitution. Here's a guide to making an informed decision when voting for judges.

An important note: Results may take a while to come in, and races may not be decided on election night. Be cautious about claims of fraud – documented cases of voter fraud are extremely rare and limited in scope.
