The Concerned Black Citizens of St. Landry Parish will be hosting the first in a series of voter registration community empowerment meetings. Organizers say the purpose is to promote citizen participation in the democratic process and civil rights awareness.
Voters will be able to check the status of their registration, district, and ward in order to ensure they are qualified and registered to vote in the Presidential election of 2012 and not turned away at the polls due to registration errors.
Also, citizens who may have a criminal record which states a first offense or wrongful conviction may be able to get his or her record expunged; which means that your rights as a citizen, including voting, will be restored. An attorney will give a free presentation on the expunging process including forms and data.
The event will be hosted on Monday July 16, 2012 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the North Park Civic Center located at North Market St. and Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd.
Any volunteers may contact Ricky Julien Sr. at 337-693-1607 or by email at email@example.com or Mr. Clifton Lemelle at 337-546-4046 for further details. For more information like the facebook page at www.facebook.com/pages/Concerned-Black-Citizens-of-St-Landry-Parish/.
