Registered voters in Kansas won't be able to blame the weather for not casting ballots.

Conditions across the state were expected to be dry and mild Tuesday, with temperatures ranging from the mid-60s to low 70s and little to no chance of rain.

The conditions would ordinarily help make for high voter turnout. But Kansas officials anticipate only a 68 percent showing -- the smallest percentage of Kansas voters casting ballots in a general election since 2000.

One reason why a third of the state may take a pass is because after the presidential choice, the statewide ballot lacks a marquee race, such as for U.S. Senate or governor.
