Kansas Predicts 22 Percent Primary Turnout

KSAL StaffJuly 31, 2014

The top election official in Kansas is predicting 22 percent of registered voters will participate in next week’s primary election.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says of the more than 1.7 million registered Kansas voters, he expects more than 381,000 will cast ballots in the Aug. 5 primary. Kobach says turnout was about 23.2 percent in the state’s 2012 primary.

Kobach says the predicted turnout for next week is based on recent primary voting history, early voting totals in the current primary and lack of a statewide get-out-the-vote operation.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that voter turnout in Wichita and other areas of the 4th Congressional District could approach 27 percent because of the contest between U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo and Republican challenger Todd Tiahrt.
