Tuesday, October 12 | Overland Park Convention Center & Online
In Person: 5:30 pm Cocktail Reception | 7 pm Dinner & Program
Online: 7 pm Virtual Program
For over 20 years we have hosted one of the largest annual nonpartisan social gatherings of elected officials, candidates, and voting rights advocates in Kansas. This year’s event, Get Out The Vote Gala will be held on October 12 in person at 5:30 pm or 7 pm virtual.
The GOTV Gala is the primary fundraising event for The Voter Network. All funds raised help keep our lights on so we can continue expanding voting access – especially within communities that have been routinely undermined in the political process. Last year we were unable to hold the event, but in the past we’ve come together to celebrate and draw motivation from special guests such as Governor Laura Kelly and CNN political commentator, Van Jones. This year our featured guest is Academy Award-winner and two-time Sundance Film Festival director, Kevin Willmott.
The Voter Network is the 501(c)(3) affiliate of Mainstream Coalition, dedicated to creating a culture of informed and enthusiastic Kansas voters, particularly within communities that have been routinely undermined by the political process.
We are limiting in person attendance at the GOTV Gala. Individuals attending in person will be required to wear masks and be fully vaccinated. Please be prepared to show proof of vaccination for entry into the event.
If you are not fully vaccinated or prefer not to share your vaccination status, you are invited to join us for a livestream of the program (more information coming soon). Additionally, anyone who is exhibiting any symptoms of illness or believes they may have been exposed to COVID-19 is also asked to participate in the event virtually.
*Please stay tuned for updates as we make adjustments based on guidance from the CDC and local health departments.
