The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard from the Christian County Clerk about the upcoming election, at their weekly luncheon on Tuesday at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
Laurie Mense told Kiwanis members about all the work she's doing in leading up to the November 8th general election. Mense said early voting begins September 29th, and voters can also register to vote on-line using their driver's license as long as the license information is correct.
Mense talked about the importance of voting and voter turnout, adding that voting is how to make elected officials accountable.
She added new laws now allow registration even on election day in her office in the Christian County Courthouse, but you have to qualify 30 days before.
And, she said she is desparately in need of additional election judges for the upcoming election.
Kiwanis members are reminded to attend the club cookout at Kiwanis Park at 6pm September 6th, and the community is reminded of the annual Kiwanis Peanut Days fund-raiser on the streets of Taylorville September 23rd and 24th with proceeds benefitting local Kiwanis projects for children and youth.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
