Election Office Update – Maize Recreation Center Polling Location
(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – The Sedgwick County Election Office was made aware that the Maize Recreation Center polling location informed voters who were in line prior to 7 p.m. would need to go to a different location in order to vote. This decision was wrong; it was not made in conjunction with the Sedgwick County Election Office and election workers do not have the authority to make this decision.
“This was an inappropriate decision made by the election workers,” said Election Commissioner Angela Caudillo. “This was immediately addressed with those workers.”
Those from the Maize Recreation Center polling site who arrived at a different polling location were allowed to vote provisionally. All polling sites have been directed to keep track of this information so that the Election Office can work to make sure those votes get addressed properly.
