National Voter's Registration Day Weekend Kickoff Events
By: NAACP DeKalb
The events will kick off on Saturday, September 25, 2021, at the Salem Bible Church with a FREE Covid-19 vaccination drive from 10 am- 2 pm (the first 50 participants will receive a $50 gift card). On Sunday, September 26, 2021, the NAACP will be at New Birth Baptist Church with another FREE Covid-19 vaccination drive beginning at 9:30 am.
President Hardy says, "we won't let distractions like SB202 Election Integrity Act deter us from the ultimate goal, which is to let our voice be heard through the tool of "VOTING". We must be intentional about providing the best voter experience in every election. We have mobilized with several community organizations to educate and register every eligible citizen so they can be prepared for absentee voting, early voting, or in-person voting. Make your plan today and Vote your voice."
To celebrate National Voter Registration Day, the NAACP will be stationed at 22 schools and 5 MARTA Train Stations across the Dekalb County area, assisting with voter registration efforts on Tuesday morning. Community members will be able to register and check their status to prepare for the upcoming elections on November 2, 2021.
