CAMILLA, GA (WALB) -

On Monday, people had the opportunity to do their taxes and register to vote at the same time.

Liberty Tax Services and 96.3 FM helped people register to vote. 

The tax service wanted to make sure they did their part to honor Martin Luther King. 

"Just knowing that we're getting people to come out and vote. Because there still are a lot of people that are not registered to vote. Just knowing that they are a part of the movement to get people to vote," said Kierstie Gilbert with the Liberty Tax Service.

There were around 15 people who registered to vote on Monday in Camilla.
