The election season kicks off as advanced voting starts in Sedgwick county. You can vote in the primary election anytime between now and Aug. 5.
We found a few folks taking advantage of advance voting Wednesday. Although, so far numbers are down from previous primaries.
"It is a little early to know, but it is a little less than we were expecting at this point," said Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman. "So we will just have to wait and see."
Lehman says this election can be more complicated than the general, since it's partisan vote. That means there are more types of ballots, but her office is ready to handle the challenge.
"What we plan for is about 45 percent voter turnout, I don't think we are going to see that," Lehman said. "But that is what we've staffed for as far as poll workers go and all the supplies at the polling location, so we will just have to see how it goes."
You may recall in 2012, problems led to delayed results in two elections which led to a state task force investigation.
Human error and management problems were to blame, issues Lehman hopes won't happen this year.
"We have more permanent full time staff and we have more part-time staff on board, so we are doing good," Lehman added.
Voters keep in mind, seven polling sites have changed in Sedgwick county this year. You should have gotten a letter in the mail about that change, plus, those old sites will be marked on election day.
Another issue in this election, there is a dual voting system. It affects newly registered voters who used the federal voter registration form and have not shown proof-of-citizenship documents.
If you're among those voters, your name will not appear in the poll book. Instead, you'll have to fill out a provisional ballot and if you've not provided proof-of-citizenship, only votes in national races will count.
