Albany - - Want to vote in Tuesday's election but don't have a way to get there? An Albany fraternity says we'll take you there.

Members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity are driving anyone who wants a ride to the polls Tuesday.

All you have to do is call on election day to set up a time to be picked up. Organizers say this service is part of one of the fraternity's national projects called "A Voteless People is a Hopeless People."  

"It applies throughout the community, especially in Dougherty County and we feel there is a need to further enhance and tell people how important it is to vote," says organizer James Bush.

To schedule pick up service to the polls, just call (229) 889-0098 anytime between 7 am and 7 pm on Tuesday.
