On Saturday October 25, 2014 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Congressman Al Green will be joined by other elected officials, community leaders and Houston voters of all ages for an early vote rally. It will be held in the San Jacinto Room of the Crowne Plaza located at 8686 Kirby Drive at Loop 610.
After the rally, Congressman Green will invite those in attendance to join a protest march to the early voting site located inside the Fiesta Grocery store at 8130 Kirby Dr., Houston, Texas 77054.
“Houston voters are casting their ballots under the most restrictive Voter ID Law in the country, which has been declared unconstitutional,” said Congressman Al Green. “We will march in the names of those who fought and died to secure this right.
We want the State of Texas to know we will not be turned around. We’ve struggled too long, sacrificed too much and come too far to be turned away. Our voices will be heard and our votes will be counted.”
