KBOR Chair encourages students to participate in election

(Topeka, Kan.) – Kansas Board of Regents Chair Bill Feuerborn released the following statement today encouraging Kansas students to participate in the upcoming election:

The Kansas Board of Regents encourages all students who are eligible to vote to exercise that right and participate in our electoral process. Students who are registered to vote in Kansas can vote in-person on election day or vote early via mail or at an in-person polling location.


Several state universities have worked with the appropriate election officials to open voting and advance voting locations on campuses. I commend their efforts to make voting more accessible to students.


Whether they are registered in Kansas or other states, I encourage students to find out as soon as possible when, where and how they can cast their vote.
