Educate and Act, Civic Engagement in 2020: The Voting Process

5:30-6:30pm Tuesday, March 3, 2020 The Commons

Presented by The Commons, the Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity, the Center for Service Learning, and the KU Civic Engagement Ambassadors

This series features experts on different aspects of US democracy, and centers opportunities for civic engagement. It is intended to help demystify elements of the systems and processes at work in the US democracy. It is also an opportunity to ask questions of local experts who study and work in this realm. Programs in this series feature campus resources as well as specialists beyond the University. In Part II: The Voting Process, presenters will speak on topics that bear relevance to faculty, staff, and students at KU as well as first-time voters. Among the topics they will explore, are questions like:

-What are the primaries like in Kansas?
-How can I vote if I’m away from home?
-How can I participate in advance voting?
-What are the important deadlines I need to know?
-What are trends in voter turnout on campuses?
-What should I expect to see in my polling place?
-How does a KU affiliation affect my involvement?
