Pandemic or no pandemic, there is an important election happening this autumn, and ELNA wants every eligible voter to have the opportunity to vote.  To check your own voter registration status online and get information about how to register to vote, go to You may also get info on vote by mail at that website. The deadline to register is October 13.

ELNA is seeking a small army of volunteers to help us with non-partisan voter registration and get out the vote efforts. Many tasks are clerical in nature and do not require any contact with other people. But if you are feeling more social in this time of social distancing, some of the tasks do involve phone calling and maybe even knocking on doors.
Let’s send a strong message that East Lawrence always shows up when it really matters!  If you are able to help, please contact us to volunteer at
