TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas has set a record this year for the
number of people casting advance ballots _ and not all of them have
been counted.

The secretary of state's office said 283,294 mailed advance
ballots had been received as of Monday morning. It said it still
was tallying how many people had done advance voting in person.

By comparison, the previous record was in 2004, with 245,680
people doing advance voting either by mail or in person. Advance
voting started in 1996.

Sedgwick County reported the most mailed-in advance ballots,
followed by Johnson County.

Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh said Friday that he expects a
record turnout at the polls on Tuesday of 1.36 million voters, or
about 78 percent of those who are registered.
