The 100 Black Men of Metropolitan New Orleans will conduct voter registration drives at Xavier and Dillard Universities Saturday, September 15 from 1 pm to 4 pm, the organization announced today.
The 100 Black Men is urging citizens to check their voting status as many voters “may have been
purged from the rolls if they have not voted regularly since the 2008 election,” the organization said in a statement sent out to the media, and notes that those voters who have been purged need to re-register.
The registrations drives will be held at Xavier University’s Student Center and Dillard University’s Kearny Hall.
