22% Voter Turnout Predicted for KS Primary

K-KOBACHKansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach predicts 22 percent of registered voters will cast ballots, statewide, in this year's primary election. However, he expects turnout in the Wichita area to be much higher, perhaps as much as 30 percent, because of the heated GOP battle in the 4th District congressional race.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach predicts 22 percent of registered voters will cast a ballot in next Tuesday's primary election. That's on par with the statewide turnout in the 2008 primary, which he says is the most similar to this year's contest. Higher turnout is expected this year in the Wichita area, where Kobach says 30 percent of registered voters might show up at the polls.


In the 4th District, former Republican Congressman Todd Tiahrt (TEA-art) is trying to take back his old seat from incumbent Congressman Mike Pompeo (pom-PAY-oh). Kobach says nearly 40,000 Kansans have already voted in advance of Tuesday's primary.
