AP–Four years ago 717 people voted in the Republican presidential caucus in Riley County, but this year the party’s leader says 1,700 ballots may not be enough.
County Republican Party Chairwoman Eileen King says the party sent her 900 ballots for the Saturday caucuses, and she had 500 extra printed for a total of 1,400 to begin the day. With high turnout she had another 300 printed Saturday, but she says those might not be enough.
King said that four candidates competing aggressively has led to increased interest in the caucuses.
The party has told workers at the 103 caucus sites to be prepared to copy extra ballots.
