“Woke Vote” works to make your voice heard at polls

Woke vote in Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - It’s the last weekend of campaigning before the mid-term elections. One group in Birmingham is working hard, pushing people the polls.

“Woke Vote“ is a nonpartisan group working to make sure everyone who can vote does just that.

A big part of effort is through a simple phone call. There are phone banks set up across the southeast, including in Birmingham.

On Friday, several employees were on the phones getting the word out.

"In the last three weeks we’ve made more than 35,000 calls and received 5,600 commitments to vote,” said Katina Smith.

" Woke Vote" is a nonpartisan group and its effort is to make sure everyone who is able to vote, does just that.
