A last minute write-in candidate who won the backing of Democrats disenchanted with their party’s nominee for state senate failed to make much of a dent in an election held in Kansas City, except for one aspect of the election – its returns. The final unofficial results of the 11th District race for State Senate were delayed a day as election officials counted the votes written on the ballots. There weren’t that many, but they came from all over the district. In the end, write-in candidate Sharon Kelley received 868 votes – well behind Republican Lynn Vogel’s 2,522 and the winner, Democrat Victor Callahan who received 5,726 votes.
