Drive to Register Voters Was Successful

This past Saturday, we completed the third and final leg of our voter registration drive for the 2016 General Election. This day, voters registered at shopping centers in downtown Silver Spring and Burtonsville.

During the previous days of action, we registered voters at Gaithersburg, Wheaton and White Oak shopping centers. In total, more than 40 people registered to vote for the upcoming election. In addition, we encouraged shoppers to vote early and distributed flyers with information about Early Voting in Montgomery County.

And we couldn’t have done it without the help of great volunteers from the Reid Temple AME Church who spent one or more Saturday mornings out with us. Reid Temple’s Commission on Social Action and Our Voices Matter cosponsored this drive.
