LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) Registering to vote became a little bit more exciting Saturday for some who have not yet exercised their right to vote.
That’s because of a special voter registration drive that took place and was incorporated with a basketball tournament taking place here in the Hub City.
Members of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity staged a voter registration drive at Girard Park, and for those who registered, their names were entered for the opportunity to play in a basketball tournament to be held next weekend.
Around 10 a.m. a large group of people had already taken advantage of the voting rights opportunity while simultaneously signing up for the 5 on 5 basketball tournament.
Alpha phi Alpha member Keithen Domingue says it’s a good way for the community to make sure they are ready for the upcoming elections.
Today was the last day to register for the tournament which will take place September 24th and 25th at the MLK Center.
