TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Tallahassee Urban League, along with the Tallahassee Branch of the NAACP will host a Reclaim Your Vote march and rally Saturday with the goal of doing just that.

They especially want college students to take part, marching from the Urban League to Florida A&M University where students will vote at the Student Union Precinct.

Curtis Taylor, the president and CEO of the Tallahassee Urban League says although voter turnout has been great so far they won't stop until they reach as many people as possible.

"When we look at early voting and talking to the Supervisor of Elections, I think we're really going to double our efforts when it comes to voting," said Taylor.

The rally is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday and they are asking students from all three colleges to come out and vote.

They will also be canvassing the Frenchtown and Southside communities after the rally.
