Tuesday, March 20, 2012 - 9:29am

They don't care who you vote for, all they care about is that you vote.

A few dozen Brownsville residents are in the process of forming a League of Women Voters chapter in our area, in order to improve voter turnout.

"Our mission down here in the valley is going to be to address the two and ten problem of voter apathy," says Member at Large of the League of Women Voters, Riley Morgan.

The basic thought that, "my vote, just doesn't count. "

"If you don't vote... you don't have a voice," says Morgan.

The group will work towards more than just getting people to the polls, once officially recognized, they'll tackle key community issues.

"Once we get organized we can do the research to take up issues that affect Brownsville," says Morgan.

Morgan adds at the top of the list, education and immigration, among other things.

As of now they are trying to get the word out about their group and trying to inform people on the importance of voting.

Now coming up March 28th at 5:30 the unofficial group and those wanting to become involved will have an organization meeting at a private residence located at 285 Jacaranda in Brownsville.
