A local community organizer is using art and youth to urge residents on Syracuse’s South Side to participate in the November election. Now that New York’s deadline to register to vote has passed, the focus has shifted to getting out the vote. Project Vote Leader Joyce Freeman says many people already vote in local and national elections.
“We are trying to also focus on the people who seldom vote but are registered and they don’t either have a way to get there or just think that maybe their vote doesn’t count. Every vote counts.”
