WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - The results are in, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump have won their parties in the Presidential Preference Primary.

Many expected the state to have a low voter turnout for the Preference Primary, so the question is how much did it cost taxpayers?

Secretary of State, Scott Schwab says this wasn't the most effective use of $5 million. And the voter turnout isn't a surprise with a Biden-Trump rematch likely in November. But some voters still found it important to make their voices heard.

"A lot of people say it isn't necessary because only one person is running on the side, but I still think you ought to get out and show force,” said Hermione Adams, a Sedgwick County voter.

A presumptive 2020 rematch of Trump didn't deter Adams from making her voice heard.

"I've never actually never miss any of them. If there's a vote primary or election, I always vote,” said Adams.

"Well, I believe that everybody needs to show in these cases because it's important for people to know what their preferences are,” said Marco Alcocer, a Sedgwick County voter.

State and county election officials say voter turnout was extremely low.

"Lower than we expected. We pulled the numbers at 3:30 p.m. Overall turnout here in Sedgwick County was 5.2%. Just for the Republicans and Democrats, it's at 8% so not as high as we would have liked,” said Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Laura Rainwater.

Rainwater says she estimates it costs $300,000 for the Presidential Preference Primary in Sedgwick County. But most of it will be reimbursed by the state.

The legislature voted to hold the Preference Primary. Secretary of State Scott Schwab says he questioned its decision when it passed. Saying it cost the state $5 million for something that's already been decided by other state's primaries.

This was the first Presidential Preference Primary since 1992 and Schwab says he would like to see the Presidential Preference Primary move to an August primary. He hopes voter turnout was at least 125,000 state-wide.
