Petitions Update – 9/8/2023 – Statement from Johnson County Election Commissioner Fred Sherman

Posted by Bonnie Limbird

After 5 p.m. September 8, the City of Prairie Village received the following statement from the Johnson County Election Office:

“We have received media inquiries about the deadline to place Prairie Village petition ballot questions on the November ballot.

“We are one week past our stated ballot deadline, and, due to logistics required to prepare ballots and the need to meet legally mandated deadlines, the Election Office is now past the point at which it can accept additional items for the November ballot. 

“These timelines exist to ensure we are able to conduct elections with the necessary diligence. The Election Office must have time for proofing ballots, programming and conducting logic and accuracy testing on voting machines, printing advance mail ballots and meeting requirements for providing overseas military ballots, as well as other legal and logistical considerations.

“Additional ballot questions may be placed on the ballot for future elections, depending on the relevant law.”
