Elections Still On: Hours Extended, Polling Places Changed
Steve Kraske reports for Midwest Democracy that, despite the fact that a foot of snow may fall on the metro area by Tuesday, the KCK mayoral primary elections are still on. Because of the weather, only a five to eight percent voter turnout is anticipated, instead of 18 to 20 percent for a typical primary.
Both KCK and Johnson County, in anticipation of Tuesday's inclement weather, have extended advanced voting in person deadlines to Monday at 7 p.m.
In addition, the Johnson County Election Office will be an alternate polling place Tuesday for any Johnson County voter. More information on the Johnson County primary elections can be found here.
