TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Many Topekans were up bright and early to head to the polls across the capital city.

Shawnee County Election Commissioner Andrew Howell is predicting a 75 percent voter turnout.

That’s about two percentage points above the previous two presidential election years. A high number of people already cast their advance ballots. Advance voting is running ahead of the 2012 general election.

Statewide, Secretary of State Kris Kobach predicted a 72 percent voter turnout. Tuesday morning, KSNT News talked to voters heading in to the polls.

Remember the polls are open until 7:00 p.m. Tuesday.

If you haven’t cast your vote yet be aware of some construction projects that could slow you down.
