"Republican turnout across the state has been incredible. Reports from dozens of county locations indicate that turnout is often four or five times that of 2012 and growing," said Party Chair Kelly Arnold
"This demonstrates the total dissatisfaction voters feel with the Obama administration and the sense of urgency to make a change in our Country.
"Having Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Donald Trump all appear in Kansas in the lead-up to the Caucus served to drive turnout up far beyond even our highest estimates of even a week ago. As an example, 600 people voted at our St Louis location.
"Every county had alternative operational plans in case turnout exceeded their capacity. Almost every county has needed to implement those plans.
"Our volunteers are adapting and improvising to get the voters through and accurately record the vote. Those volunteers are the true heros of this effort, they gave up their free time to assist our democratic process.
"Shawnee, Sedgwick and Johnson counties have seen extremely long lines and voters are being processed as rapidly as possible. We are shifting resources to assist those locations.
"Anyone in line at 2:00pm, or even a little after, will be allowed to vote. No voter will be turned away.
"Given the turnout, we cannot predict when we will have the final vote count tonight."
