With the election behind us, how did this year’s voting process stack up with years past? More turnout? Less? In Kansas, the office of the County Clerk is responsible for administering the election process.

That process consists of much more than just Election Day logistical management. It also involves voter registration, advance voting, compliance with state and federal regulations and the management of local polling locations.

Please join Riley County Clerk Rich Vargo for a comprehensive debrief of the 2022 election in our community. Get a sense of turnout and trends.
