WICHITA, KS – Today, Kansas Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh appointed Bill Gale to a third term as Sedgwick County Election Commissioner. The ceremony took place at the Sedgwick County election office.


“As the elections process continues to evolve, it is critical that we have individuals like Bill Gale at the helm.
