Voters that KSN News talked with on Tuesday say they waited for 20 to 30 minutes to vote. Some even walked away.

“Case I get sick or something can’t come on Election Day, I want to vote, I’m retired, so I can and free space up for people that are working and can’t get in on time,” said Rex Sageser, voter.

Many voters said they wanted to avoid the wait that many saw in the August primary.

“In the last election that we voted in, we stood in line for more than an hour, maybe two hours, and I just wanted it over with, and I wanted to make sure I voted,” said Terry Dean, voter.

The Sedgwick County Election Office has created an “expected to vote” heat map for Nov. 8. If you live in one of the areas noted in RED, these locations are expected to be the busiest on Election Day and will likely have lines.
