College Course on Voter Registration Proposed in Kansas

KSAL StaffOctober 26, 2015

The League of Women Voters and some college professors are proposing a course to teach Kansas students how to register to vote.

The Wichita Eagle reports the proposal, unveiled Saturday in Topeka, is aimed at younger voters because they make up a majority of the state’s suspended voter list.

Marge Ahrens, with the League of Women Voters, says new laws in Kansas have made registering to vote more complex.

The course will begin this fall at Washburn, Emporia State and Fort Hays State universities. Students will learn how to register themselves and others.

The Eagle reported earlier this year that more than 40 percent of the nearly 37,000 people on the suspended voter list are under the age of 30.
