One-hundred seventy-seven mayoral, city council and trustee, and other positions are up for election in Sedgwick County this cycle, including mayor of Wichita.
This morning began advance voting for the Primary Election. Not all candidates will be relevant in the primary, as most will run exclusively in the General Election, but one race is of particular interest.
Kansas’ largest city, Wichita, has nine mayoral candidates, and all are running in the primary, including incumbent Jeff Longwell. The two candidates with the most votes will advance to the general election in November.
Here are the candidates, all running as nonpartisan:
- Joshua M. Atkinson
- Brock E. Boocker
- Ian M. Demory
- Mark S. Gietzen
- Jeff Longwell
- Amy Lyon
- Marty Mork
- Lyndy Wells
- Brandon Whipple
To vote in the primary, you must have already registered. That deadline passed July 16.
Early voting is available at several locations around the county on August 1, 2019 from Noon to 7:00 p.m. and on August 3, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (see map below):
