Women for Kansas-Cowley County will hold its regular meet-up from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Sept. 14 at the Community Council Room in City Hall, 200 E. Ninth Ave., in Winfield.

The event is free and open to the public.

This month’s featured speaker is Cowley County Clerk/Election Officer Karen Madison., who will speak on “What’s new and what’s possible in Cowley County Elections.”

Madison will share information on various topics, including past voter participation in Cowley County and brainstorm with the group about what actions could be taken to encourage more voter participation; could bringing businesses, schools and government offices together be a catalyst for increasing voter turnout; and security issues involving elections and equipment on many fronts, such as physical, cyber, paper ballots and manual audits.

“We are eager to learn what role committeemen and committeewomen play in our political process,” W4-CC leader Pam Moreno said. “Karen will share how this group of registered voters can play a key role when an elected official leaves office prior to the end of term.”

Changes are coming to the county elections that include advance voting for the Arkansas City community this fall prior to Nov. 5 general election.

Details will also be shared on new vote centers that will be rolled out for the community in the future.

Women for Kansas-Cowley County holds regular meetings on the second Saturday of each month. All are welcome. For more information about this event or Women for Kansas-Cowley County, call Moreno at (620) 262-2326 or email pam.moreno@sbcglobal.net.
