Over the weekend, Michelle Obama's When We All Vote organization stopped through Newport News, VA with their Voter Registration Block Party. The event included many special guest: Award Winning Journalist April Woodard, Motivational speaker & Political Activist Jeff Johnson, Congressman Bobby Scott, School Board Member John Eley & was hosted by our own Ambie Renee & DJ Rick Geez.
Over 100 people were able to get registered during this three-hour event, just days ahead of the October 15th registration deadline to vote in next month's General Election.
When We All Vote is a non-profit, non-partisan organization initiated by former First Lady, Michelle Obama. Its purpose is to ensure every eligible American is registered to vote because, of course, every vote matters.

Special thanks to the United State of Women, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sority, inc. and the Virginia League of Conservation Voters for also being a big part of this event.
