NAACP Encourages Community to Get Involved at Rock the Vote

Columbia community members of different ages gathered Saturday to place door hangers on residents’ doors in the Indian Hills neighborhood.

Asia Smith, member of the Columbia chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People for a year and a half, is passionate about informing Columbia community members to use their voices to vote since she is not of age to cast her own ballot this election.

“Every vote counts,” Smith said. “This (door hanging) is something I needed to do in wake of the Black Lives Matter movement.”

About fifteen volunteers split into two groups late Saturday morning with the aim of distributing door hangers throughout northern Columbia.
