Secretary of state predicts 50 percent voter turnout

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has predicted a voter turnout of 50 percent in the general election Tuesday, Nov. 4, in Kansas.

“We expect this year to look much like 2010 in terms of voter turnout,” Kobach said.

In 2010, the ballots cast by registered voters totaled 856,631, or 50 percent of the voters.

That compared to 52 percent in 2006; 53 percent in 2002; and 50 percent in 1998.
