TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas officials are preparing to certify results from this month's general election.

The State Board of Canvassers scheduled a meeting Thursday afternoon to review totals from races for congressional, legislative and other state offices.

The board is led by Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Gov. Sam Brownback and Attorney General Derek Schmidt also are members, though they can send representatives rather than attending themselves. All are Republicans.

The meeting comes amid a debate over a new Kansas law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls.

Critics contend the law suppresses turnout. But Kobach has reported that only about 700 people were required to cast provisional ballots because they went to the polls Nov. 6 without valid. That's out of more than 1.1 million Kansans who participated.
