WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman said things have been running pretty smoothly at election sites around the county. There were a couple of problems this morning with some voting machines.

Lehman added they have seen a couple of groups of people petitioning out in front of polling site, and they have had a few cases of people having to vote using a provisional ballot.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach predicted that about 1.3 million voters would participate before polls closed tonight. KSN caught up with some voters.

“I’m honestly very glad that today is here. I think that it’s going to be a day that goes down in history. But, I’m glad today it is here so we can go on to tomorrow,” said Michaela Schoenthaler, voter.

“We talk about our opinions as a family, who we think is going to win, who we want to win, and why and why it matters,” said Danielle Hajdini, voter.

The Independent Living Resources Center, Haysville Community Library, and Eastminster Presbyterian Church have all seen a steady line of voters. Some had to wait about 10 to 15 minutes to vote.

Polling sites close at 7 p.m.
