TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Shawnee County Election Commissioner Andrew Howell says the biggest difficulty for the 2020 primary elections was extra preparation for social distancing and last-minute changes.

Shawnee County Election Commissioner Andrew Howell says the biggest difficulty fo the 2020 primary elections was extra preparation for social distancing requirements and last-minute changes.

Howell says while he tries to keep things simple by not changing last-minute details, sometimes that is impossible, and has only been fueled by COVID-19 this election day.

Howell says a few election locations had to be changed last minute due to nursing homes and churches wanting to keep patrons safe from COVID-19.

According to Howell, election results will continue to roll in throughout the week and will be tabulated. He says the Shawnee County Election Office will make periodic updates on results.
