In a MIT study of the November 2016 election, Kansas ranked 47th Voter Registration and 48th in Voter Turnout!
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…
EVERY Saturday at Ad Astra
We gather at 2:00 p.m. to write postcards to our representatives. In the last few months our state and national elected leaders have received hundreds of postcards from Salina area League members and other friends who have dropped by our table to write about their legislative concerns. The League provides the postcards, representative’s addresses and postage. All you have to do is add your voice! (Check our calendar for possible cancellations around the holidays.)
The Salina League is always looking for members who can help. Could you sit at the postcard table on Saturdays sometimes? How about helping with a voter registration table this year? See more opportunities at “Meet the League”. If you are willing to give an hour, please Contact Us.
The public is welcome to the League of Women Voters free Lunch & Learn, on the second Tuesday of the month (September-April), 12:15-1:15pm, Salina Public Library’s Prescott Room (downstairs). All are welcome to bring a lunchand eat during the presentation. Questions and discussions are welcome as well. Lunch & Learn happens three months of the fall semester and three months in the spring. See our Calendar on the events page for dates and details. AND IF YOU MISS THE LUNCH AND LEARN SEE THE VIDEO.
