Berrien offers trolley rides to the polls

November 5, 2002

Nashville - One by one, Nashville residents file on to the community trolley. It's an effort to raise the town's recent history of low voter turnout.

"The past few years has been pretty disappointing, so we hope that by offering them this transportation and a little fun mixed in, we can get those numbers up" said Audra Partin, local campaigner.

The town's creativity is definitely working. Busloads of voters are enjoying the ride to city hall.

"I think this is a wonderful idea," said Melvine Anderson. "It's getting people to vote and we're having so much fun."

From sun up to sun down, the trolley will continue its rounds until all registered voters have their say at the polls.
