A Kansas House member from Olathe said lawmakers are likely to debate proposals next year to change the scheduling of local elections around the state.
General elections for city offices and local school boards are usually held the first Tuesday in April in odd-numbered years, with primaries in late February or early March.
Elections Committee chairman Scott Schwab said the House has been interested in the matter because few voters turn out for those elections.
Schwab, a Republican, acknowledges that the Kansas Senate has shown little interest in the subject. But that could change, as the 40-member Senate opens the 2013 session with 16 new members.
Schwab said one proposal is to move local general elections to the first Tuesday in November in odd-numbered years.
