Most primary elections only turn out a small portion of the electorate – but this year’s Kansas primary was unlike any other in the state.
This year’s primary ballot included a question to decide whether to stop the state’s constitution from protecting abortion rights, which could have paved the way for the state legislature to completely ban abortion.
On Tuesday, Kansans resoundingly voted against the anti-abortion measure – and turned out in record numbers to do so.
