TOPEKA, Kan. - Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach was pleased that voter turnout in the 2012 Kansas primary election reached 23% of eligible voters. Of the 1.7 million registered voters in Kansas, 392,000 cast ballots. Obviously, most of those voters chose Koch/Brownback-backed Republican candidates over incumbents and other moderate candidates who were more interested in supporting education, the disabled, and other issues that will affect the average Kansas citizens rather than taking care of the rich through tax cuts and making sure women's access to abortion is further restricted.
Kobach said the turnout exceeded his expectations. My question is how his expectations could be lower than less than a quarter of those eligible to vote. Shouldn't he as secretary of state have higher expectations of Kansas voters?
