VOTER REGISTRATION INITIATIVE
A lot is happening in our world right now. The Board of Directors of the Springfield & Central Illinois African American History Museum (AAHM) has been moved by the massive, diverse crowds protesting for justice and are inspired to do something. Have you thought about what you can do to help the cause and make your voice heard? There are so many issues that need to be addressed. How do you pick one and focus on that? How can we impact positive change in our community?
OUR VOTE IS OUR MICROPHONE, ABSOLUTE RIGHT, AND OBLIGATION
The Board of Directors of the AAHM, in cooperation with several organizations in our community, will serve as hosts for voter registration drives. In order to make a significant impact in our community, state and our country, we need to work together to get everyone in Springfield who is eighteen and older registered to vote. After you are registered to vote, you need to go vote.
Below is a schedule of dates and times you can register to vote. All events will be held at the Springfield & Central Illinois African American History Museum, 1440 Monument Ave., Springfield, 62702. Please visit our website at www.spiaahm.org, our Facebook page, our Twitter and Instagram pages to find out more about our organization. This schedule will be posted on our social media sites.
If you are not registered to vote, please come and register. If you know someone that is not registered to vote, bring them to one of the scheduled events. We worked to provide a variety of dates and times for the events so everyone can register to vote. Please bring two forms of ID.
All the voter registration events listed below will be held at the Springfield and Central Illinois African American History Museum, 1440 Monument Avenue, Springfield, Illinois 62702.
