A local group wants mothers to vote, so it’s offering to entertain children while parents cast their ballot.

The Health & Wellness Coalition of Wichita, the group that put bike lanes through the city, has created a campaign called “Vote Like a Mother.”

The campaign aims to excite the community about voting and offers information about how to register and where to vote on Tuesday. The group does not endorse candidates.

On Election Day, Vote Like a Mother will offer activities and coloring pages to children at several Wichita polling sites in an effort to encourage parents to cast their own ballot and educate their children about voting.

The locations with children’s activities will be:
