Bossier NAACP working to get out the vote with registration drives


BOSSIER CITY, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The Bossier Parish chapter of the NAACP working to help people register to vote for the November 3 presidential election.

“It matters, even one vote makes a difference in the long run,” said Jordan Washington, who registered to vote Tuesday evening at a voter registration drive on the Louisiana Boardwalk Tuesday evening.

“This is a historic election, there is a lot going on and there is a lot on the ballot, you know some of our constitutional rights are on the ballot,” said Y’Anna Yauzenne, who chairs the voter registration drives for the Bossier Parish NAACP chapter. “Everyone doesn’t know the information that needs to get out so that they know, they are eligible to vote and so we have information, and really the big things is for us to get out information to as many people as we can.”

Yauzenne says the Bossier chapter of the NAACP has gotten more than 25 people registered to vote so far this week.

“People’s voice matter every day and it matters because people have opinions, too,” said Taylor Geter, who also registered to vote Tuesday.

A’Zaiun Taylor also registered to vote Tuesday.

“No matter what anybody else says, everybody voice does need to be heard.”

“It’s been important all my life,” said Chasity Ruffin. “I’ve been working the polls since I was 17. My grandma has always instilled in us that it’s important to vote everything counts and it’s one of our duties to do that, is to work and vote.”
