WICHITA, Kan. - It is local primary election day for communities across Kansas.

In Wichita, voters will decide among nine candidates for mayor and four candidates for one open seat on the school board.

Early voting finished Monday at noon. Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman says she has never seen a line for early voting like she did Monday.

Lehman says typically, about 10% of registered voters show out for the local primary elections. After today, county officials will determine if the turnout was larger than average.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Voters must go to their designated polling location. You can find your polling place at myvoteinfo.voteks.org
