Candidate to visit campus, address voters


 Jean Schodorf, former republican member of the state Senate and current democratic candidate for Kansas Secretary of State, will pay Washburn a visit this week to meet with students and speak on voting rights.

Schodorf will start her day around 10 a.m. with a tour of campus. Following the tour, the candidate will head to Memorial Union at noon to eat lunch and mingle with students. That afternoon, she is scheduled to give a presentation on the importance of voting and a overview of the new voter registration law. Schodorf is running against current Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Students are invited to attend this free lecture, which will take place in Henderson 100 at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 18.

Schodorf’s appearance will be preceded by a visit from U.S. Senate candidate Greg Orman, who will speak in Henderson 100 on Wednesday, Sept. 17.
