Turnout In Kansas Primary Is 50% Higher Than Expected , Attributed To Abortion Referendum
Voters in Kansas today voted on a referendum on whether or not abortion should remain legal in that state. The result was a turnout of appx 50% , which is much higher than the 35% that usually votes in Kansas primaries.
In addition, the "no" vote, which would keep abortion legal is winning 64 -36 over the "yes" vote, which would permit change in the states constitution in order to ban abortion.
Half the vote has been counted , so there is still time for "yes" to come on and catch"no", but the people who support right to choose in that state are said to be confident.
Bottom line - we may be seeing the first inkling of a massive turnout in November across the country simply based on the abortion issue. Will be a boon for the Democrats if it happens.
