Bryan County Citizens for Neighborhood Schools has launched a countywide voter registration drive during the month of February, according to a press release.
Bryan County Citizens for Neighborhood Schools President Wendy Maxwell and Vice President Troy Padgett have sent letters to community organizations in Bryan County, asking for support and participation in the voter registration drive, the release said.
"Voting is one of the simplest forms of community participation in our country," the letter said "Bryan County is fortunate to be home to citizens who take this responsibility serious."
Letters seeking support and participation were sent to the Bryan County Republican Party, Richmond Hill-Bryan County Chamber of Commerce, North Bryan County Chamber of Commerce, Bryan County Home Builders Association, Savannah Board of Realtors, Rotary Club of Richmond Hill, City of Richmond Hill, City of Pembroke, Bryan County Commissioners, and the Bryan County Board of Education, the release said.
The group said it also will be working with local homeowners’ associations to register voters who may be new to the area and haven’t previously registered to vote.
Voter registration forms have been delivered to closing attorneys to offer new residents the opportunity to register in Bryan County.
Voter registration forms have been placed at several businesses, including Bryan Bank and Trust, First Bank of Coastal Georgia, RE/Max Accent, Coldwell Banker Platinum Partners, Prudential Coastal Georgia Properties, Energy Oasis, Ella’s, Richmond Hill-Bryan County Chamber of Commerce, Fort McAllister Marina, Richmond Hill Café and the Pembroke Telephone Company.
