In an election with dismal voter turnout, east Wichita’s second district emerged with the highest participation — 17 percent of registered voters voted. The race featured two candidates — Pete Meitzner and Charlie Stevens — with fairly strong name recognition that was propped up by roughly $74,000 in campaign spending on several mail pieces, hundreds of yard signs and other advertisements.
No city council positions were up for election in District 1, in north-central and east Wichita, or District 6, in north-central and west Wichita. Here’s a look at district-by-district turnout in Wichita.
