Early Voting Could Ease Congestion on Election Day in Kansas

Early voting has been breaking records in Kansas. In Douglas County, by the end of last week the in-person early voting totals had doubled the previous record set in 2008. Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew is urging voters to take advantage of early voting.

“Right now, you can walk right in and we can have you checked in without a line and you can be gone in a few minutes after doing your ballot. It probably won’t be like that on Election Day,” says Shew.
Shew says they’ve set the goal of getting 20 to 25 percent of voters casting ballots early to help ease congestion on Election Day. In-person early voting will continue in Kansas until noon on the day before the election.
