TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Turnout is on the upswing since the Democratic party in Kansas switched from a presidential caucus to an all-mail primary.
With several days of voting left to go, the party already had processed 138,430 ballots as of Monday evening, The Kansas City Star reports. That is compared to a turnout of 39,266 voters in 2016, when caucus-goers went for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Voters have until Saturday to get their ballots to party headquarters.
