Black Radio United For the Vote! Stations serving our community have joined forces to share information with our community to make sure their voices are heard at the ballot box.

During the last election cycle in 2020, an informal group of Black Radio executives in Atlanta came together to promote voting for the good of our community. They formed Black Radio United For The Vote. WCLK Program Director David C. Linton leads our station activities for the group.

I asked Linton how the organization came into being. He spoke about Terri Avery at KISS 104 reaching out during the 2020 election. The station executives put their competition aside and joined forces with messaging, announcements, and events to ensure citizens had the information they needed to vote. In the 2020 election, Georgia turned purple.

Black Radio United For The Vote is back, working with executives and on-air talent to ensure our community members know their rights. These stations bringing the candidates to the people this year.

On Tuesday October 4th at 7pm, Black Radio United For the Vote will gather on the campus of Clark Atlanta University with candidates running for governor Abrams and Kemp, along with candidates for Secretary of State and other offices to speak directly to the community.

This event will take place at the Bishop Cornelius Henderson Student Center on October 4th at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30pm and the event is open to the public.
