Hattiesburg downtown businesses team up and host voter registration drive | News
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM)- While the municipal elections are months away, Click
Boutique along with Twelve Oaks and surrounding business neighbors hosted Speak
Up Saturday Voter Registration Drive on Saturday.
Many residents stopped by and registered to vote,
and along with receiving discounts at many of the local downtown businesses,
they also were able to pose on the Instagram photo booth, where their pictures
will be posted on the Click Boutique billboard across from USM all next week.
"I think sometimes we think that the local elections
sometimes get looked over and really these are the elections that are going to affect
you," said Co-Owner to Click Boutique Jason Leviere. "It's very important that
we all participate and help things move to a place that we're going to love the
city that we live in."
The next registration drives will be held March 9 at
T-bones and March 24 at Keg and Barrel.
