Mayor Don Wesely today encouraged Lincoln area residents to attend the "Love Your Country. Vote" tour, a voter registration event beginning at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 23 at Westfield Shoppingtown Gateway.
"Too few Americans exercise their right and responsibility to vote, and voter registration is the first step," said Mayor Wesely. "I commend the organizers of this tour for their efforts to get more citizens to the polls."
The voter registration rally will include a live performance by the new country music group, Little Big Town. The "Love Your Country. Vote" tour is a non-profit, non-partisan campaign to encourage Americans to register to vote. The tour began July 4, and the local event is part of a series of rallies in mall atriums in 25 cities across the nation before August 31. Partners in the campaign are Sony Music, CMT-TV (Country Music Television) and TransWorld Entertainment (FYE/Record Town).
