TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — More than 1 million Kansas residents voted in the state’s general election earlier this month to set a record for a non-presidential year.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Friday that the voter turnout of nearly 58 percent was “extraordinary.” In non-presidential years over the past two decades, turnout in the general election had averaged 51 percent.

Kobach, Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Gov. Jeff Colyer’s chief attorney met briefly to certify results compiled for the Nov. 6 election by the state’s 105 counties.
