A record number of Sedgwick County voters turned out to vote early Tuesday, the first day the county’s 15 satellite sites were open to voters.
Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman told Sedgwick County Commissioners at their meeting Wednesday that just under 10,000 people participated.
As of Wednesday morning, officials said close to 20 percent of registered voters in Sedgwick County had already cast ballots. Lehman said that equates to nearly 60,000 people. But, Lehman said, there are still close to 22,000 ballots her office has mailed out that have yet to be returned.
