FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Mobile, AL — November 7, 2016) – The Mobile County NAACP is working with area churches and organizations to help voters in the Mobile area get to the polls on Election Day, Nov. 8, 2016.

At least 26 churches are using their vans to get their members and people living near the churches  to the polls. Members of the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice and the Mobile Environmental Justice Action Coalition are also offering assistance to encourage voters to go to the polls.

People needing rides to the polls can call the Mobile County NAACP office at (251) 725-0779 from 9:00AM to 6:00PM. Members will also be calling voters who have missed several election cycles to encourage them to go to vote on Tuesday.

“The NAACP cannot tell people who to vote for. But we can encourage people to go to the polls, and we can assist them in getting there,” says Rev. Ledell Cleveland, the Mobile County NAACP Political Action Chair. “In this unprecedented election, it’s imperative that every registered voter exercise their right to vote. This election is too important for any registered voter not to have their votes counted and their voices heard.”

The current list of participating churches is attached, and will is being updated as more volunteer. Local A.M.E. (African American Methodist) and A.M.E. Zion churches are also working to get their members to the polls.
