So important that the Ministers have joined together to make sure that anyone in Dougherty County who needs help getting to the polls, will get it.

The Ministers assure they are non-partisan, and will not try to influence voters. They just want to make sure everyone in Dougherty County gets the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.
Simmons said "There are some issues in this election that are going to impact people's lives not only for the present, but for the distant future. And so we want to make sure the voices of the people are heard in this election."
From 7 AM until 7 PM November Second, The Albany Baptist Ministers will give you a ride to the polls from anywhere in Dougherty County.
