Voter Turnout Expected To Be In Record Numbers

Joe Denoyer - November 3, 2016 3:55 pm

Secretary of State Kris Kobach is predicting that a record number of Kansas voters will cast ballots in Tuesday’s election.
Kobach said Thursday that he is projecting that more than 1.3 million of the state’s 1.8 million registered voters will participate. He said heavy advance voting is a sign.
He is forecasting a 72 percent turnout. It would be the highest percentage since the 74.7 percent seen in 1996, when Kansas had far fewer registered voters.
Kobach said high interest in this year’s presidential race is driving turnout. The Republican secretary of state was an early supporter of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and believes Trump is attracting new voters.
Kansas Democratic Party Executive Director Heather Scanlon said Trump is also turning out people to vote against him.
