Primary elections typically struggle to draw crowds at the polls.
For instance, 23 percent of voters cast ballots in Kansas’ 2012 primary election, compared with 67 percent voter turnout for that year’s general election, according to the Kansas secretary of state office.
With primary elections coming up in both Missouri and Kansas next month, there are hotly contested races and key issues to be decided. We want to know more about your upcoming voting intentions.
