Democrats rally to Get Out the Vote


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Get Out the Vote rally Friday on the Northside was a block party of sorts.

Democrats gathered at Gateway Mall, urging people to go take advantage of early voting.

National radio personality Tom Joyner was on hand to met with the voters and push the message as well.

Congresswoman Corrine Brown was also on hand and said voters should vote now and not wait.

"Every day is an important day," Brown said. "We don't know if it's going to be storming out there (on Election Day). The key is to vote today. I am voting today, and I am going to make sure everybody votes tomorrow or next Sunday."

Mayor Alvin Brown was on hand stumping for votes in his re-election bid.

Challenger Lenny Curry's campaign said Curry didn't have plans to hold a similar rally.
Curry was at The Player Championship on Friday, shaking hands, and will be knocking on doors looking for support.
