Northeast Community Credit Union co-sponsored a voter education event to help inform and prepare the community before the upcoming November elections.

NCCU, along with the Elizabethton/Carter County Public Library and the United Way of Elizabethton/Carter County, hosted the event at the ECCPL.

At the event, East Tennessee State University Professor and political analyst Dr. Daryl A. Carter spoke about the importance of voting and possible reasons about why more eligible voters do not participate. Employees from the Carter County Election Commission were available to register any unregistered voters.

“Voting in an important right and one we are thankful for,” said a credit union representative. “We were pleased to help support the community and work together to help potential voters be informed.”
