​Voting Heavy at Early Polling Sites Across Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — 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 am 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 October 19 across the state. Johnson County Election Commissioner Ronnie Metzger says they have broken all-time records every day since in-person voting began Monday. Metzger says they are also processing a backlog of 9,700 voter registrations — part of what he calls a "tsunami" that hit during the two days before last week's deadline.
