Ricky Cole, Chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party and Rick Barry, former Chairman of the Lauderdale County Republican Party were guest on WTOK's on the record Sunday.

One of the major topics of discussion was how both parties are going to reach out to young voters and get more them to the poles in the future.

"They are the future of our party", said Rick Barry "if we don't get them involved in the process now, our members are aging out. There are a lot of members that have been for years."

Ricky Cole agreed, "We have worked and are continuing to work to organize young voters in the states. I have spent a lot of time at universities and they have to get and understanding of how its works."
