Eudora News and Information www.eudorareporter.com

3:30PM Update:

With Primary Day two-thirds of the way complete, voter totals are showing slightly less than the 13% of 2010.

West Eudora has been the largest turnout so far today with 79% of 2010 totals. North Eudora is a slight bit over 75%.  South and Central Eudora are around 55% of the previous primary total voters.  There is some expectation that the South and Central precincts will pick up as these homes are primarily occupied by commuters.

Election results will start to come in shortly after the polls close and we will have all the up to the minute results here. “Refresh” will be your friend tonight 🙂

Original Story:

Voters head to the polls today to cast votes in both Democratic and Republican primaries. Democrats will be choosing who will oppose Representative Lynn Jenkins in November for the U.S. House of Representatives 2nd District and Republicans will be making a decision on who will represent them heading into the general election for both the Kansas House 42nd District and Senate 3rd District.

Voter turnout is a slight bit lighter in Eudora than the 2010 primary.  In the 2010 primary, 748 voters went cast ballots which yielded a 13% turnout.

As of 11:00AM, in West Eudora, the average is on pace to equal 2010. So far, 100 people had turned up to vote. 208 turned out in 2010. In North Eudora, 49 have headed to City Hall to cast a ballot.  This is about 40% of the turnout for the previous primary.  South Eudora has had 102 voters, which is approximately 39% of the 2010 voters and in Central Eudora, only 51 voters have so far headed to the polls. This is slightly over 32% as compared to 2010.   Normally, many voters either head to the booths prior to going to work or after they return home.

Polls will be open until 7:00 PM this evening.  We will be bringing you up to the minute results from today’s election into the evening on the web site. Make sure to check back often.
