Early voting, which began July 15, ends Saturday (July 30) for the Aug. 4 election.

On Saturday (July 30) – the last day of Early Voting – from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. the Shelby County Voter Alliance (SCVA) will host a Poll Party at Briarwood Community Church, 1900 N. Germantown Parkway.

“Local Elections have a more direct impact on our day-to-day lives, but most people don’t vote in local elections,” said Ian Randolph, spokesperson for SCVA.

“We want everyone in our community to feel informed and ready to cast their votes, and to celebrate our democratic process together.”

The event will feature music and free food, as well as the opportunity to register to vote in the Nov. 8 election. There also will be drawings throughout the event, giving voters the chance to win $25 gift cards.

Early voting is Monday through Friday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., except at the Shelby County Election Commission, which opens from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In concert with Memphis Area Transit Authority and the Shelby County Election Commission, the SCVA is promoting free voter transportation to the polls all day on Friday, July 29, two days before early voting ends.

The entities forged the partnership in March to accommodate voters during the County Primary Elections.
