Heavy Turnout Reported at Kansas Caucuses

A top Kansas Republican Party official says presidential caucus sites across the state are reporting heavy turnout. State GOP Executive Director Clay Barker said today (SAT) that even small counties are reporting more voters than they had anticipated. The party printed up 60,000 paper ballots in case the turnout was about twice as large as it was in 2008 and 2012. But the party has told workers at the 103 caucus sites to be prepared to copy extra ballots. Hundreds of Republicans waited in line at Olathe South High School in the Kansas City area, and delays in checking computer lists of registered voters were being reported. Barker said at the caucus site in Topeka, extra volunteers began checking paper registration lists. Kansas Republicans will caucus until 2 p.m. this afternoon (SAT). Kansas Democrats will open their caucus doors at 1 p.m.; voters need to be in place by 3 p.m. to participate.
