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 and we need YOU! See training dates on our calendar.
Why Vote??? Citizenship in a democracy requires it. Historical sacrifices demand it. And if you think you have reasons NOT to vote, think about THIS…
April 1, 2020 is #Census Day! 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!
We have gathered at 2:00 p.m. to write postcards to our representatives. In light of the efforts to curb the effects of the COVID-19 virus we are suspending our meetings. HOWEVER, you can and should continue to contact your representatives. You can use our postcards or write your own letters but let your voice be heard! (We will resume meeting as soon as possible. Check our CALENDAR ) Click here if you’d like to print your own postcards.
