The Kansas governor’s race was a nail-biter with incumbent Laura Kelly eking out a 1.4% cushion over  Attorney General Derek Schmidt.

Of the 976,276 votes counted, Gov. Kelly was ahead by fewer than 14,000 when the race was called Wednesday afternoon.

For those who quip their vote doesn’t count, this is proof positive it does.
