Digital Democracy on Tap: Elections During COVID-19

June 9, Tuesday, 5-6 p.m.
COVID-19 has impacted all aspects of social life, including how we vote. In partnership with our League of Women Voters, KMUW’s Engage ICT will bring together local experts to discuss how the upcoming elections will continue amid the pandemic.

The Kansas Primary Election is just two months from now and the General Election five months. On the ballot will be candidates for US President, US Senator, US Representatives, every Kansas State Senator and Representative, many District Court Judges, County Commissioners and dozens of other offices across the county. Running these elections is challenging in the best of times. How will it be accomplished in this time of pandemic and election security concerns?

At Digital Democracy on Tap: Elections During COVID-19, Sedgwick County Commissioner Tabitha Lehman will join a panel for a one-hour live conversation on Tuesday, June 9 at 5 p.m.

Tabitha, who is a League member, planned to speak at our now cancelled Annual Meeting. We encourage all our members to invite everyone to join you to watch this live stream and to share the information with people who have concerns about voting. The live conversation will be streamed from KMUW’s Facebook page and at EngageICT.org. Email your questions in advance to info@kmuw.org.
