TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas officials are preparing to hear objections to listings on primary election ballots for three state House seats.

The State Objections Board is scheduled to convene Tuesday. The board is made up of Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, all Republicans.

A group called the Kansas Equality Coalition wants to remove Democratic Rep. Jan Pauls, of Hutchinson, from the ballot. The group questions whether Pauls lives at the address she listed on her filing form.

Another objection involves two House Republicans from Johnson County who were placed in the same district when political boundaries were redrawn.

In a third case, Democrats are objecting to Kobach's refusal to list Larry Meeker, of Lake Quivira, as a candidate in another Kansas City-area House district.
