Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’re aware that the current political climate is practically as divisive as segregation.

Not only are races and ethnicities pitted against each other, but there are pro-lifers vs. pro-choicers, those who want to implement measures to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 and those who think masks are violations of their rights.

There’s a way for just about every instance to be politicized, and they often are.

We’ve begun seeing Republican vs. Democrat rather than a disagreement between ideas and analyses. However, one area where almost all agree is that voting is important.  Those in power know that voting is a way to maintain that power, while those who oppose governmental control see voting as a way to change the sculpt of the political surface.

No matter the opinion of the voter, advocates feel that one’s voice should be heard.

With this in mind, the Tuscaloosa County Democratic Party is hosting two events to assist Tuscaloosa residents, regardless of affiliation, with absentee voting, voter registration, and voter restoration services.

The first event will be held at 610 36th Avenue on September 12th from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.  The location for the second event will be 3311 Loop Road.  It will be held on September 20th from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. as well.

Again, one does NOT have to be affiliated with the Democratic Party in any way to take advantage of the services provided. The only necessity is a face covering.  Social distancing will also be enforced.
