Post election voter registration has been pretty quiet. The totals reported to the Kansas State LWV for activating from April 1st through November is as follows:
Number of Events: 81
Number of New Registrations: 1,152
Number of Registration Changes: 350
Number of Tabling Hours: 300
Number of Volunteers: 374
The recent exciting news is the receipt of a $500 grant from National for youth registration drives this spring. We will reach out again to area high schools, both public and private, colleges, the college and career center and any organization that will be sponsoring youth activities.
We do not yet have a schedule for naturalization ceremonies to be held in Lawrence. The administrators of the naturalization ceremonies will soon be contacted to firm up some dates and venues.
We will be gearing up and promoting local elections that will take place this November. In addition to schools and naturalization ceremonies, we hope to continue our tabling at the Lawrence Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, seek out tabling opportunities as local community events and look for new venues for voter registration events.
Happy New Year!
