In honor of Martin Luther King Day, the ordinary people society went into jails and encouraged inmates to register to vote.
The “Let My People Vote Campaign” was led by tops members across the state for the second year in a row.
Monday afternoon local members went into the Dothan City Jail and the Houston County Jail to encourage inmates.
Last year approximately 100 prisoners registered and this year, Reverend Kenneth Glasgow hopes to double that.
Those inmates who were convicted on misdemeanor charges may vote, but those who have been convicted of a felony cannot.
