Kansas television stations are being urged to consider running these 15-second spots promoting voting in Kansas elections. The Eleanor Roosevelt spot is already being broadcast on KTWU Public TV, Channel 11, and we're hoping KTWU and other stations will soon be running all three spots. Watch all three here:

On May 20, 2016, it was announced that voter registrations at the Kansas Department of Motor Vehicles, both prior to that day and henceforth, will be checked against DMV documents. Persons registering to vote at the DMV will no longer be put on suspense lists and purged if the DMV has matching documents to support their citizenship. It is our understanding that those registering to vote elsewhere will still be required to produce documentary proof of citizenship. We will notify members if we receive further information. 5/21/2016
