Advance Voting Numbers More Than Double

More than twice as many Kansas voters are now casting ballots at early polling sites across Kansas, compared to the last presidential election.
The latest figures from the Kansas Secretary of State’s office show 67,211 people voted in-person as of 8 a.m. Thursday – more than double the 33,832 who did so at that point in the 2014 election.
Mail-in ballots are going out at roughly the same pace, with 173,893 mail-in ballots sent out since Oct. 19 across the state.
County Clerk’s offices are also processing a backlog of registrations that hit before last week’s deadline.
