Polling location changes confuse Sedgwick Co. voters

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

WICHITA, KAN. --- Despite the expected low turnout, Sedgwick County volunteers say there was a steady stream of voters at the 13th St. polling site throughout the day.

"I'm voting because I'm a veteran. I figure if I went to that trouble, might as well vote 40 years later," said Wichita resident Arvin Winch.

Winch says he went back and forth on who to support.

"Mr. Pompeo and Mr. Tiahrt, I had trouble making up my mind on that one," he said.

The only trouble Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman experienced was issues with where to cast ballots.

"We had seven locations change, the entire site changed, and we just had some changes here and there where some precincts changed and they had to go to a different polling location," Lehman said.

It's a minor problem Lehman plans to fix before Nov. 4.

"We're going to send out a county-wide mailer that just reminds everybody what their sites are before they go to the polls for the general election, just to make sure it's completely clear," she said.
