THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Nearly 70 women came to Thomasville Wednesday afternoon to talk about the importance of their voice and their vote in the upcoming election. 

State Representative Darlene Taylor said she thinks voter apathy is a huge problem among women in this country.

The luncheon set out to encourage women to focus on the issues that matter, and to follow through with the voting process. 

Taylor said, “Learn the issues and make their voice heard.  Find something to believe in and work for it.  Voting is a big part of that. Women want to hear about the issues. They want to know what to do.  And I hope this will encourage them to stand up and speak out.”

Taylor ended the luncheon ahead of schedule for the women to go out and take part in early voting in Thomas County.
