WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — As an election supervisor and poll worker for more than 20 years, Robert Bailey routinely mailed in his ballot early, confident that voting problems elsewhere that he read about would have a slight chance of happening in his suburban Kansas City county.

So when the 82-year-old Republican learned from an Associated Press reporter that the ballot he mailed in advance of the 2018 primary was not counted because his signature didn’t match his voter record, Bailey said he was “really incensed.”

“What makes me feel bad is that they didn’t advise me,” Bailey said.
