LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Miss. (WTOK) The Veterans for Foreign Wars presented the Lauderdale County Election Commission with something special Friday at the courthouse.
The VFW purchased 45,000 "I voted today" voting stickers for the election commission to give voters during elections. These stickers have never been brought to the community before. A member of the VFW says it's important for our community to get out and vote so people can have their voices heard in the county.
"The stickers are real important because we want to know that they can go out and be proud that they voted and wear it and maybe get more awareness to get more people to the polls. Without the voters we cant make a difference until the voters show up," said Natalie Copeland, a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of VFW Post 12124.
The election commission hopes this will inspire people to vote.
