It’s encouraging that more than 42,000 people in Sedgwick County had voted in advance as of Monday. That suggests that voter turnout this election could be high – and that the lines on Election Day might not be too long. Voting delays became a real concern after Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Bill Gale reduced the number of polling places by 70 percent in 2006. But one proactive part of his plan was an expansion and emphasis on early voting. Voting centers are open at more than a dozen area locations through Saturday and on Monday morning at the Sedgwick County Election Office, 510 N. Main. Voters can still vote by mail if they apply by 5 p.m. Friday. But whether you do so by mail, at an advanced voting center or at a polling place next Tuesday, be sure to vote.
