(WICHITA, Kan.) — Sedgwick County had a better turnout than expected for Tuesday's primary election. So did the rest of Kansas.
Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Bill Gale says out of 255,829 registered voters, 64,628 people cast ballots. That puts turnout at 25-percent.
Gale said voter turnout was steady throughout the day, and triple digit temperatures did not keep voters from going to the polls.
The Secretary of State's office predicted about 20-percent turnout statewide. Turnout ended up being about 23-percent.
The vote totals are unofficial at this point.
County commissioners will meet later to certify the election results and determine whether any provisional ballots can be counted.
