LACF to Host Early Voting Party

“Voting can be fun” is the concept behind the Early Voting Party set for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, in the parking lot west of the Seward County Administration building, 515 N. Washington. Sponsored by the Liberal Area Coalition for Families, it is a non-partisan event geared to promoting voting and early voting.
“We wanted to raise awareness that the Seward County Clerk’s office was having early voting on Saturday, Nov. 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.,” said Kay Burtzloff, LACF President. “For anyone working an 8 to 5 job, this gives them a great opportunity to vote early.”
Burtzloff said the Coalition will be providing hot chocolate, bottled water and snacks. “People can also sign up to win one of eight $25 gift cards we will be giving away.”
Burtzloff said that voting is not necessary to join the party or to sign up for the prizes. “While its main purpose is to encourage people to vote, we also wanted to provide a fun community event.” She said that Seward County Community College gave the Coalition permission to use its parking lot at the Epworth Adult Learning Center. “We wanted to be careful to have the event convenient to the voting site but not violate any election laws.”
“Our goal has been to increase voter participation in Seward County,” Burtzloff said. “If you have any questions about your voter registration, you can easily check it at ksvotes.org.”
