ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Several community organizations in Albany are partnering to get more of you to vote in this year's presidential election.

Albany Technical College, Albany State, and Turner Job Crops teamed up with the 2009 King Day committee to hold several voter registration drives throughout the city.

The first voter registration drive will be hosted at the Albany Mall and Kmart for 10 am - 2 pm on Saturday.

"This is an historic election, and so we want to get everybody out, as many people that we can that have not registered to vote. They can come out and do so before the primary," said Sherrell Byrd Reg, voter registration and education initiative coordinator.

In the last presidential election, Dougherty County had 45, 575 registered voters.

Now there are more than 48,000 voters.

Albany State will host a voter registration drive and tailgating at the October 4 ASU vs. Stillman game from 10 am to 2pm.

The Student Government Association at Albany Technical College will host their voter registration drive on Monday October 6.

Turner Job Corps will continue to host voter registration drives for their students, faculty, and staffs throughout the month of September.

All drives are open to the public.
