TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Shawnee County Elections Commissioner Elizabeth Ensley Deiter gave official notice of her resignation from the office.
She sent a letter to Shawnee County Commissioners on Friday, revealing her last day will be September 14th.
Gov. Sam Brownback appointed Ensley Deiter to the magistrate judge position in Doniphan County on August 17th. She will replace her husband, who stepped down two months ago for health reasons.
