LWV-TSC yard sign The Topeka-Shawnee County League of Women Voters is offering yard signs to members and friends. We have taken the idea from the Johnson County League, but are having them made in Topeka with our name. The message reads "Your VOTE Matters." An image of the sign is at the top of this column.

Our signs are 18" x 24" on "conoplast", a sturdy water resistant material, two-sided, with built in black metal legs. They are recyclable, so you can keep them for future elections.
The charge per sign is $12, tax included. Please order quickly to reserve your signs!

Order today from Shelley Bulkley. We expect delivery before our next Tuesday Topics on October 7!
Vicki Arnett will manage the collection of the money at the time of delivery. Thank you Shelley and Vicki!


“Your Voice, Your Vote”

video forumsThe League of Women Voters of Topeka Shawnee County and KTWU Public Television bring voter information programing to your living room. Check local program listings for the channels that carry the programs. You will note that the League is no longer a sponsor of the Secretary of State forum. We had to withdraw as the League of Women Voters of Kansas is a partner in a law suit over voter identification. As of this writing, not all candidates for “I’ve Got Issues” programing have confirmed they will appear but all candidates for the forums have done so.
