Exhibit at the Kansas State Fair

Postponed to 2021 | Hutchinson, Kansas

The LWVK booth at the Kansas State Fair will celebrate the Suffrage Centennial in the Sunflower South Building.

Highlights include:

  • the big 7-panel display of Kansas women’s voting history from pre-statehood through modern times
  • a “Wheel-of-Information” for visitors to spin and answer questions about government, voting, and women’s suffrage
  • a life-size cutout of a suffragist for a “Selfie with a Suffragist”
  • opportunity for visitors to register to vote and request advance ballots
  • lots of information on women leaders in Kansas

Booth volunteers receive free admission.


Statewide “March to the Polls”

The initial event will be held on August 22–23, 2020, the weekend before Women’s Equality Day, the centennial anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment. Activities are planned for Topeka, Overland Park, Kansas City, Wichita, Lawrence, Salina, Hays, Garden City, Liberal, Hutchinson, Leavenworth, Dodge City, Emporia, Pittsburg. Other cities or counties may be added. Marchers will walk from election offices or courthouses into the target neighborhoods—low income, high minority, gatherings of millennials, etc., and hold voter registration rallies and register voters. They will continue to work in these neighborhoods until the November election.
