JOHNSON COUNTY, Kan. — The Johnson County Board of Commissioners will convene the Johnson County Election Office at 9 a.m. Monday.

When that meeting begins, Election Commissioner Ronnie Metsker will present a report on the county's provisional ballots.

He'll recommend which ones should and should not be counted. 

The board will then review the report and vote. 

Its decision is important because those votes will help decide if Secretary of State Kris Kobach or current Gov. Jeff Colyer wins the election. 

Every county in Kansas will be canvassing the election this week in a process that could take several days.

Friday, Aug. 17, is the deadline for candidates to ask for a recount.
