Kansas Sees Big Jump in Early Voting

Kansas election officials say more people are casting early ballots at polling places. Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew says until now, 2008 had been a record-setting election in Douglas County.
“I really didn’t think that we would get near 2008 numbers, but we at this current time have passed and continue to beat the 2008 numbers,” says Shew.
In fact, Shew says voting this year is shattering the old record.
“In-person has been running double of what we did in 2008 for every day. We’ll be looking at being well past our 2008 in-person numbers,” says Shew.
Statewide, the secretary of state’s office says more than 150,000 votes have been cast so far. That compares to 117,000 at the same time in the 2012 election.

In-person, early voting will continue in Kansas until noon on the day before the election.
