President’s Perspective

June 2024 

Recently I came across a LWV blog regarding the power of Women Voters.  This article outlined data from the 2022 election whereby the turnout of women voters outpaced male voters.  Kansas was noted as one of the states with a high voter turnout – of course Kansas had the Vote No/Vote Yes amendment on the primary election ballot and the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

Additionally, the article denotes the number of women who register to vote surpasses men registering to vote.  In some cases, the margin is a 10% difference.

Please take the time to read this blog,   It is a quick read and underscores the importance, impact and power women will have on this 2024 election!
