Kansas is seeing an increase in advance voting for the Aug. 4 primary amid the coronavirus outbreak.
As of Tuesday, the number of ballots voters returned by mail is six times more than the ballots returned in 2016, according to data collected by the Associated Press. The number of ballots returned by mail is also six times more than the ballots returned in 2018.
The number of advance ballots cast in person is slightly ahead of those cast in 2016. Kansas is one of 30 states that don’t require a voter to have a reason to vote absentee.
