The shift from winter to spring and back again is being termed Sprinter by some. Using that term….I think that Sprinter describes our launch into Spring by the League of Women Voters Topeka- Shawnee County.
The League has joined with the YWCA Advocacy Committee to promote an Integrated Voter Engagement Project to increase voter turnout. Former Topeka Mayor, Joan Wagnon and I appeared before the Shawnee County Commission to propose a satellite voting location be established in Central Topeka for weekend voting. Several community members including Mayor De La Isla and USD 501 Superintendent Tiffany Anderson have signed letters of support. Research has shown that Integrated Voting Engagement is among the most effective ways to increase voter turnout. Read entire letter.
