Today (TUE) is primary day for local elections. Voters in Kansas are choosing candidates for school boards, city councils and other local offices. Shawnee County Election Commissioner Elizabeth Ensley predicts a 13 percent turnout in the county. She says that’s slightly below normal.
The polls are open until 7 pm, but in some areas voting locations will be closed because no races are on the ballot. Voters who have questions about the election can contact their county election office for more information. The general election for local offices will be Tuesday, April 5th.
