Kansas Saw Voter Turnout of 23.5 Percent in August Primary

KSAL StaffSeptember 1, 2016

Kansas saw 23.5 percent of its registered voters cast ballots in its Aug. 2 primary election.

Final election results presented Thursday showed that 411,552 voters cast ballots out of nearly 1.75 million registered.

The turnout was slightly below the 24 percent predicted by Secretary of State Kris Kobach but higher than the 23.2 percent in 2012, the last presidential election year.

Kobach, Gov. Sam Brownback and Attorney General Derek Schmidt met Thursday as the State Board of Canvassers and certified the election results.

Turnout exceeded 50 percent in 14 of the state’s 105 counties. The top figures were 64.8 percent in Wallace County and 60.3 percent in Greeley County.

Five counties saw a turnout of less than 15 percent. The lowest was 12.7 percent in Franklin County.
