It's Election Day in Kansas. Polls will be open across the state throughout the day. Check with your local election office for hours.

In Sedgwick County, polling places are open from 6:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman says those polling places will be staffed by election volunteers. More than 20 of them canceled yesterday, but Lehman says there are significantly more than what's required by law.

Thousands of Sedgwick County voters have already cast their ballots using early voting, both in person and through the mail. But, turnout is expected to be high today.

Lehman says to give yourself plenty of time when you go to vote. You could see long lines before and after work, and during the lunch hour.

Be sure to have a valid photo ID like a driver's license, passport, student ID or government ID.

Eyewitness News is following the election all day long, and into the evening. Watch for results as soon as they start coming in on air and online on the KWCH 12 App.
