The American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas is hosting a telephone town hall on voting rights in the state.
The group is inviting 20,000 households across the state to participate in Tuesday’s event, which takes place on National Voter Registration Day.
Former Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger will moderate.
Panelists are Marge Ahrens, co-president of the Kansas chapter of the League of Women Voters; Cheryl Brown Henderson of the Brown Foundation, whose parents were involved in the litigation that led to public school desegregation; and Doug Bonney, legal director for the ACLU of Kansas.
The planned event is slated just days after the ACLU was in a Shawnee County court challenging the dual voter registration system in Kansas.
Similar events are also being held in other in several other states.
