WINFIELD — Women for Kansas-Cowley County will have its monthly meeting from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Feb. 11 at the Winfield Area Chamber of Commerce office, located at 123 E. Ninth Ave. The event is free and open to the public.
The featured speaker will be Wichita State University statistician Beth Clarkson. Clarkson, who has three decades of experience as a statistician, uses her expertise to study election results.
She founded the Show Me the Votes Foundation, an organization dedicated to the evaluation of election integrity and reliability of electronic voting machines. For more information, visit www.showmethevotes.org.
Clarkson will speak about her findings from a statistical analysis of exit polls conducted Nov. 8, 2016, at five south-central Kansas voting locations, including in Winfield.
Women for Kansas-Cowley County also hosted a program by Clarkson at its August 2016 meeting. It was there that Clarkson began organizing with Pam Moreno, co-leader of the Cowley Women for Kansas chapter, to set up the exit poll at the Winfield polling place.
“Many of the volunteers who staffed the exit poll and tallied the ballots are Women for Kansas members,” said Moreno, “so we are very interested to hear from Dr. Clarkson about the results.”
Women for Kansas-Cowley County meets on the second Saturday of each month. Everyone is welcome to attend.
