KNDU Teams With League Of Women Voters For Registration Drive

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND, Wash.--With the help from members of the League of Women Voters, many people took part in KNDU's voter-registration drive.

The event happened Wednesday (August 27th) night at the Albertsons grocery store on Lee Boulevard in Richland.

With only 69 days until the election, shoppers and first time voters took advantage of the service.

Even a few 18-year-olds showed up.

Aside from mom and dad, KNDU wanted to know what inspired these brand new voters to have their voices heard on November 4th.

"My parents wanted me to and I also just really felt the need to as a young person to be apart of my government," says Claire Mourar. It's my duty."

"Most people don't take kids my age seriously so its nice to be able to contribute to an important event," adds Danielle Mills.

League of Women Voters staff helped 89 people get registered in nine hours.

If you missed out, stop by the Mid-Columbia Library on Union Street in Kennewick on Wednesday, September 17th for another registration drive.
