If you think there seems to be a lot of early voters this year, you're right.
In the first week or so of advanced in-person voting, Kansas counties in the metro area are experiencing numbers that suggest records could be broken.
"I never thought we'd surpass 2008," says Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew.
That year, when Barack Obama beat John McCain, many precincts across the nation saw historic overall turnout. But this year, Shew and others suspect new early voting benchmarks could be set.
