ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Folks at the Albany Area YMCA are making it a little easier for parents to get out and vote Tuesday.

The Central Facility on Gillionville Road and the Lee County Branch are offering Election Day childcare.

Y members can drop off their kids for free. Others in the community can do so for a small fee.  

"We just felt that it would give everybody an opportunity to get out to vote and drop their children off in a safe environment at the YMCA," Assistant Childcare Director Sarah Mitchell said. 

You can find more information at the organization's Facebook page
