More people have voted in advance than the last presidential election. Secretary of State Kris Kobach reports advanced voting is up over the same time in 2012.

In Shawnee County, Election Commissioner Andrew Howell told 13 NEWS that he is seeing about triple the number of advanced voters from four years ago.

Riley County is also seeing a steady stream of voters a week from election day.

"We really promote advanced voting...we have it by mail and also in-person that way we help alleviate the pressure on the polling places on election day," said Riley County Clerk and Election Official Rich Vargo.

Riley County has two early locations both at the courthouse and at the Kansas State University Student Union.

Early voting will continue across the state until noon on Monday, November 7th. Hours and locations vary by county.
