TOPEKA: Kansas: Kansas has four U.S. House seats on the ballot in 2012. Three of the four U.S. House incumbents face at least one challenger in the general election. Tim Huelskamp, the Republican incumbent of the 1st Congressional District, is facing no opposition.
All four Congressional seats are currently held by the Republican Party.
In Kansas, most polls are open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM Central Time as Kansas mandates in its state laws that the polls must be open a minimum of twelve (12) hours. Counties may open the polls earlier and close them later.
Kansas is divided between Central and Mountain time zones.
