Newscope/NAACP to host voter registration opportunities in Saline County March 1

Friday, February 29, 2008

On Saturday, March 1, the Mar-Saline Branch of the NAACP will conduct voter registration in Marshall and Slater, according to branch officials.

Those who are not registered to vote in the upcoming April elections, August Primary election and the November General Election can come to the Wal-Mart store in Marshall or Slater General Store in Slater from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"If you are 17.5 years old and will be 18 by the November election, you can register. If you are new to the area, you need to register to vote. If you have not voted in the last two to three general elections, you may need to register to vote. If you are not registered to vote, you must register to vote," said Lucille Williams, political action chair of the branch. "It takes a minute to allow your voice to be heard. You cannot vote if you are not registered. Protect your right to vote."
