The number of sites for advance voting in person for next week’s primary election expands Thursday to 16 locations throughout Sedgwick County.

Voting at 15 of the sites will continue through Saturday. Voting at the Sedgwick County Election Office, where voters have been able to cast ballots since July 25, will end Friday. The primary election is Tuesday.

Advance voting participation, both by mail and in person, has been low, said Tabitha Lehman, the county’s election commissioner. Through Tuesday, only 740 had voted in person at the election office and only 2,800 mail-in ballots had been received.

A week before the 2010 election, more than 11,000 mail-in ballots had been received by the office, she said.
