A political forum was held at Wichita's Tabernacle Bible Church Sunday giving voters a chance to learn more about candidates before going to the polls.
Several candidates took part in a forum sponsored by 19 churches and organizations called The Voter Empowerment Committee. Democrat Gail Finney, an incumbent running for the 84th district responded to a question about corporate personhood, affordable health care, and student debt.
Finney says its, what she calls, "the 1 percenters" who benefit the most.
Some voters in Wichita are taking advantage of casting their ballots early during this election cycle, but so far there hasn't been as many advanced voters in person as in 2008.
On the first day of voting Wednesday, Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman says the number of early voters was a little more than 400, about half as many as on the first day of advanced voting during the 2008 Presidential Election. However, Lehman says voting by mail has significantly increased.
