PENSACOLA CLERGY, COMMUNITY ACTIVISTS TO JOIN AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTERS ACROSS THE STATE FOR “SOULS TO THE POLLS” SUNDAY
PENSACOLA – The Baptist Ministers Union of Pensacola along with the African Methodist Episcopal Churches, African-American Episcopal Zion Churches, Pensacola Black Lives Matter, Prince Hall Shriner’s, several African-American community organization, churches, and voters across our community will head to polling precincts this to usher in Souls to the Polls Sunday.
The effort dubbed “GO TO VOTE 2016,” encourages African-Americans in the Pensacola area to cast their votes on Sunday, October 30, 2016, at the West Florida Regional Library located at 239 North Spring Street. Several African-American congregations plan to meet at the poll site immediately following their Sunday services to participate in this vital election.
Dr. Michael J. Johnson, President of the Baptist Ministers Union of Pensacola commented: “That Soul to The Polls Sunday is vital to the early voting period.” “While the early voting period had been reduced by two days, I fill confident that African-American voters will show up to the polls in record numbers.”
In addition to Souls to the Polls Sunday, the collaborative groups have established a free ride to the polls hotline for individuals needing transportation to the polls. Voters in need of a ride may call or text 850-972-8278 to obtain a ride to the polls during early voting and on Tuesday, November 8, election day.
