Secretary of State announces Students Serve campaignLeah Fliter
The Kansas Secretary of State’s office announced Tuesday a new “Students Serve” campaign to encourage high school students to serve as poll workers in upcoming elections. KASB is a partner in the initiative.
Deputy Secretary of State Katie Koupal rolled out the campaign at the Kansas State Board of Education’s June meeting. Koupal said county clerks and election officials have asked for more young people to supplement the current ranks of poll workers.
”This is exciting,” said State Board Chair Kathy Busch, who noted the campaign dovetails with the Board’s civic engagement outcome. “I’m looking forward to getting these materials out to my districts.”
Board member Jim Porter asked that the Board officially add its seal of approval to Students Serve at a future meeting.
The United School Administrators of Kansas, Kansas-NEA and the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) are also partners in the effort.
