Primary drew about 20 percent of Kansas voters



TOPEKA, Kan. - Kansas officials say about 20 percent of the state's 1.74 million registered voters participated in primary elections this month.
 
The State Board of Canvassers said Wednesday that nearly 351,000 votes were cast in the Aug. 5 primaries.
 
Secretary of State Kris Kobach had predicted 22 percent turnout.
 
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/YYbpUN ) it was the lowest turnout for a Kansas primary election since only 18 percent of voters went to the polls in 2006.
 
Logan County in western Kansas had a 40 percent turnout, the highest in the state. The lowest turnout, less than 12 percent, was in Labette County in southeast Kansas.
