Ministers and representatives from churches across Wichita met with staff from the Sedgwick County voter registration office Thursday as part of an initiative called ‘Souls to the Polls’. 

The goal of the initiative is to get more people out to vote. 

Ministers and volunteers discussed ways to increase voter turnout and decrease apathy by some citizens who may think their vote isn’t important.
