TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Topeka is having an unusual special election involving only a single polling place where some voters received the wrong ballots in the state's primary election.

The polling site at the Light of the World Christian Center opened Tuesday, and the results there will settle a Republican primary for a Kansas House seat. But only 432 voters are eligible to participate.

Some of those voters received the wrong ballots during the Aug. 7 primaries. The church is the polling place for two precincts, one in the 52nd House District and the other in the 56th.

Only the 52nd District's Republican nomination is in doubt. Physician Shanti Gandhi leads retired naval and State Department officer Dick Jones by 45 votes out of more than 4,000 cast.
