Kansas vote tally confirms results in favor of abortion rights | National

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — Decisive national vote in favor of abortion rights in traditionally conservative Kansas was confirmed in a partial manual recount, with less than 100 votes changing after the last precinct reported results Sunday.

Nine of the state’s 105 counties recounted their votes at the request of Melissa Leavitt, who sought tougher election laws. Most of the costs are covered by longtime anti-abortion activist Mark Gitsen. In an interview, Hitzen admitted that it was unlikely to change the outcome.
