The voter turnout was greater than expected for Sedgwick County and the state as a whole in Tuesday's primary election.
Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman reports a turnout of 20.4 percent for the primary, while the Kansas Secretary of State's office has a statewide figure of 22.8 percent.
Lehman said an exact count is not known at this time, but there are more than 600 provisional ballots from the primary. She said the process of checking photo IDs at the polls went well, and there were 27 provisional ballots filled out by people who did not have an ID. She said three have since produced the proper ID.
Sedgwick County commissioners will meet on Thursday, Aug. 16 for the vote canvass. They will consider the provisional ballots and certify the results of the primary.
