ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany State University students are encouraging their fellow classmates to get out and vote. 

ASU's History and Political Science Club and the Center for African-American Men hosted an Election Day block party Tuesday afternoon.

The political science students helped register 300 students to vote earlier this election season. 

Club Vice President Kyle Brown voted early and said he hopes his classmates realize how their votes influence every aspect in their way of life.

"It just really affects us," he said.  "And we want students to know that it affects them as well. So we're very adamant about voting and being involved on campus."

ASU's Student Government Association hosted an election watch party for students as well.
