Result charts here for the big 3 ballot items for Lawrence voters: the constitutional amendment, Douglas County Commission District 1 Democratic primary, and U.S. Senate primaries.
We’re updating these charts as quickly as possible as the numbers come in. This page will be updated frequently — refresh to make sure you’re seeing the latest data. Please note on each chart how many precincts are included in the results.
Douglas County voters were showing up to the polls in such great numbers that poll workers were unable to provide an afternoon turnout update. Read more about that here.
Unless a chart says otherwise, the data includes statewide numbers. Tap or click on data points in these interactive charts for more information.
All of these numbers are unofficial, even once all precincts have been counted. Provisional ballots and mail ballots that have been postmarked by Tuesday will still need to be counted, and results are not official until after the canvass.
