Saline County Master Clerk and Elections Officer Jamie Doss is preparing for a big turnout for the August 2nd Primary Election in Kansas.
Doss joined in on the KSAL Morning News Extra Monday and said how big that number will actually be statewide is a topic she has discussed with her fellow election officers around Kansas.
“We’re preparing for a 63-percent turnout, in Saline County because you just don’t know,” she said. Doss believes a more likely turnout falls somewhere between the mid to upper thirties.
Early voting in Saline County has been steady with mail-in ballots, in person voting and drop box ballots cast over the past week.
Early voting has been underway since July, 18 and will close on Monday, August 1st at noon. The primary election is August 2nd.
