Members take part in Moral March to the polls

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — With early voting now open, a group in Wilmington marched to the polls to voice their vote.

Members of the NAACP and members of St. Stephen AME Church took part in the Moral March to the polls Saturday morning.

This group chanted, sang and marched from the church to the polls on Second Street in Downtown Wilmington.

Deborah Dicks Maxwell said that they are exercising their given right to vote and allow their opinions to be heard.

“This is one of many marches across the state to encourage voters to vote.” Maxwell said. “We’re doing it today because unfortunately our board of elections decided we didn’t need to Sunday vote after we’ve already had historic numbers of people voting during early voting.”
