Souls to the Polls carries on Sunday tradition
October 28, 2012
The line of cars, vans, and church buses backed up for blocks on Kaley Street as hundreds of voters participated Sunday in a Souls to the Polls early-voting event at the Orange County Supervisor of Elections office.
The traditional day for early voting among black churches is the Sunday just before Election Day, but this year the Florida Legislature shortened the number of days for early voting, eliminating that Sunday.
"You can take a Sunday away, but you can't take away our vote or our voice," said Bishop Kelvin L. Cobaris, pastor of the Livingston Street Church of God in Orlando.
