A special election is underway in Sedgwick County to determine who will fill the seat in Kansas' 4th Congressional District. The seat has been vacant since Mike Pompeo was appointed CIA director in January.
At the close of early voting Monday, 23,000 people in Sedgwick County had cast a ballot.
“It has been a steady turnout," says Lauren Bianco with the Sedgwick County Elections office. "Not overwhelming, but a steady turnout at the polling locations.”
The contest is between Democrat James Thompson, Libertarian Chris Rockhold and Republican Ron Estes.
