Group Targets Young Voters

KSAL StaffDecember 16, 2015

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The League of Women Voters has launched a campaign to educate young citizens about the Kansas voting registration process.

The “Your Right to Vote: Kansas Campus Initiative,” professors at four universities will discuss the registration process and show students a five- to 10-minute instructional video produced by the public television station KTWU.

Students in the Washburn University political science department wrote the video’s script.

The League of Women Voters had the idea for the initiative after the group analyzed the state’s list of suspended voters and found that 40 percent of people on the list were under the age of 30. Many lived in the state’s college towns.

The League hopes that the effort will spread to high schools in the future.
