Kansas Primary Election Saw 20% Turnout



TOPEKA, Kan.  -  Kansas officials say about 20% of the state's 1.74 million registered voters took part in this month's primary elections.
 
Secretary of State Kris Kobach chairs the three-member State Board of Canvassers, which certified the results of the Aug. 5 primaries on Wednesday. Nearly 351,000 ballots were cast.
 
Kobach had predicted 22% turnout. The 20% participation was the lowest for a Kansas primary election since 2006, when it was 18.
 
Turnout in the last primary in a non-presidential election year in 2010 was 25%.
 
Logan County in western Kansas had the highest turnout, at 40%. The lowest turnout, less than 12%, was in Labette County in southeast Kansas.
