A voter registration and education forum was held Saturday in Clarke County.

The community came together to fellowship and to be informed of why you're vote matters and the impact it has. Event organizers say the forum is meant to educate the community and to express their right to vote. The AW Production put on a skit of a mother that tries to get her daughters to vote.

“It’s a privilege for me to be out here and I have enjoyed myself. I love that this is about voter registration because it’s something that we all need to participate in. Especially on a millennial level, we need to engage and use our civil duty,” says event organizers Amber Johnson.

The voter registration deadline for the general election is on Monday, October 7th.
