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.
