The President’s Perspective

Vicki Arnett, Chapter President

My grandmother used to say, there is no rest for the wicked, and the righteous don’t need any. Our league is pretty righteous. We have advocated for extending weekend early voting with the Shawnee County Board of Commissioners. No commitment was made to extend early voting for the November election, however, LWV has a 100-year history of advocating for increased access to the ballot. We will be back.

Please double check your voter registration and vote on or before Nov. 5. Information about your candidates may be found on vote411.org. Our voter services worked very hard to obtain answers to questions from all local candidates by participating in vote411. Educate yourself and others about the Kansas Constitutional Amendment question by reading the Voter and vote411.

Please plan to join us for Tuesday Topics on Election Day, Tues. Nov. 5 to learn from a panel of all five Shawnee County school superintendents.
