OUACHITA PARISH, La. (KNOE) - The Louisiana Delta Community College Student Government Association partnered with Zeta Phi Beta to encourage students and staff to register to vote.

The school set up a table in the lobby with information and computers for those who wanted to register.

SGA President David Payne expressed the need for people to show up to the polls.

“I will encourage them by telling them, put your numbers out there, put your votes out there because it’s really important, especially when you want to see a change in our community,“ Payne said. ”And the only way that we can do that is by being successful in going out and vote.”

LDCC Dean of Students Alvita Thomas knows that voting is how citizens can impact issues within the community.

“There are so many issues that we’ll face nationally, statewide, and really here in our community, and the way we are able to address those issues will be to get out and vote,” said Alvita.
