The race for state treasurer has produced no rancor and few headlines.
The candidates are Republican incumbent Lynn Jenkins and Democrat Larry Wilson, who is Shawnee County treasurer.
The two live in Topeka just a few blocks apart and have not said a cross word about each other during the campaign.
Wilson said disenchantment with Republican Party politics might propel him into office.
"Right now, I would say the GOP position is not in the best interest of the people of Kansas," Wilson said.
Jenkins, a former state legislator, has touted her accomplishments in office since 2003.
Under her administration, the treasurer's office has been taken off state general tax dollars to fund its operations.
She also pushed for expansion of the Learning Quest program, which allows people to save for college.
"This first term has been a sheer delight for me," Jenkins said. "I couldn't ask for a better job as a CPA who enjoys public service."
The treasurer's office also oversees the state's bank accounts and is in charge of returning unclaimed property.
