Tuesday marks National Voter Registration Day
COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Today marks National Voter Registration Day.
The New Georgia Project team was in south Columbus encouraging people to register to vote and sign a card pledging that they will vote in the upcoming election.
Being able to talk to people plays a huge role in getting people to vote and that’s what the group is all about.
“To have people sign these pledge cards - these commitments say I am going to do this for people,” said LK Pendleton, Faith Director of New Georgia Project. “To say I am going to do this because I want to secure not only my generation, but the generation that follows me.”
The New Georgia Team offered lunch and water to the people in the area as well.
