In a MIT study of the November 2016 election, Kansas ranked 47th in Voter Registration and 48th in Voter Turnout! We’re going to change that! See SALINA VOTES, our exciting new collaboration between Salina’s League, the NAACP of Salina and the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Salina for the 2020 election year. We are going to get out the vote!

Areyouconcerned about the Postal Service?
You can apply for a mail ballot and you should do so soon. If you receive a ballot in the mail and are worried about mailing it back, know that you have a few options. You can drop off your ballot at any early voting location in your county—which includes your election or county clerk’s office. And Saline County Clerk has a secure, designated drop box outside the county building at 300 W. Ash if you don’t wish to go into the office. You could also drop it off at your polling site on Election Day, November 3rd. Ballots won’t arrive in voters’ mailboxes until the middle of October but you must apply again now for the mail ballot even if you used one for the primary elections in August.
Saline County and the City of Salina issue proclamations recognizing August 2020 as the Centennial of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote and the 100th anniversary of the founding of the League of Women Voters.
Make sure Kansas Counts!
Once every 10 years the census counts every person living in the U.S. once, only once, and in the right place. It is the law and, for Kansas, it could mean about $3.88 billion over the next 10 years in federal funds, grants, and support to Kansas counties and communities. The information will also be used to reapportion the U.S. House of Representatives and to redraw the state’s congressional districts. This year it will be easier than ever to make sure you are counted. Just go online to my2020census.gov It is fast, secure and private. Your responses cannot be used to identify you or your household, or used against you, and can only be used to produce statistics. So, Be Home! Be Safe! Be Counted!
