Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh says there may be a record voter turnout in the Nov. 4 general election in Kansas.

"Indicators are there may be a record turnout. Things are looking very good for that right now," the state's chief election official said Wednesday. "We are telling county clerks to prepare for a record turnout."

Thornburgh said he's not ready to give specific estimates until it's closer to election day. He said Kansans have until Oct. 20 to register and advance voting starts 20 days before the election, Oct. 15.

He said the high turnout is expected because of the highly contested presidential election, coupled with strong campaigns in the 2nd and 3rd congressional districts plus various local issues on the ballot.
