NAACP pushes voter contest



The Cincinnati Enquirer

EVANSTON - The Cincinnati branch of the NAACP is sponsoring a competition between neighborhood churches, community councils, and beauty and barber stops to see who can get the most new voters to the polls.

The prize for the winner in each group is $2,000.

The three awards will go to those that register the most new voters who actually cast ballots on Election Day. The neighborhoods chosen: Avondale, Evanston, Walnut Hills, West End, Mount Auburn, Over-the-Rhine, South Cumminsville, Winton Hills and Price Hill.
