Arthur and Darlene "Koffey" Smith are Opening Up A "VOTER REGISTRATION DEPOT" in Houston's Historic Fifth Ward Across the Street from Finnigan Park
Most people know Arthur J. Smith as a businessman with a passion for designing and printing T-Shirts for corporations, schools, businesses, events, and family reunions. But what a lot of folks don't know about Smith is that he recently hatched a plan to register 100,000 new voters in Harris County. Yes, that's right, 100,000 new voters in Harris County. "This is a very lofty goal this young man has adopted," says Aubrey R. Taylor, publisher of Houston Business Connections Newspaper. "I for one, hopes that he can accomplish his goal. As a matter of fact, I believe it's incumbent upon all of us to do what we can to get more people engaged and playing active roles in the elections process," Taylor went on to say.
The "Grand Opening" of the "Voter's Depot" will take place on Tuesday, July 28, 2015@10:00 A.M. -- SO DON'T MISS IT!!! The “Vote & Live” registration headquarters is located at 5307 Sonora in Houston’s Fifth Ward right across the street from the historic Finnigan Park.
There will be plenty of music and ice cold drinks for area residents, politicians, public servants, celebrities, and business people. Everyone's invited -- Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Tea Party, Green Party -- nobody's excluded.
SMITH IS DEPUTIZED
Arthur J. Smith recently became deputized to register voters in Harris County. And the "Voter's Depot" is a part of his vision to make a difference in Harris County. "This historic endeavor is very much needed to get more people involved in the process of electing those who govern over us," says Taylor. "What Arthur J. Smith has created is both timely and unique in it's own right. In essence, this young man has created a "ONE-STOP NON-PARTISAN VOTER REGISTRATION SHOP" in one of Houston's most under-served communities...and I applaud him and his wife Darlene "Koffey" Smith (a 2015 Candidate Running for HISD School Board Trustee for District II) for doing this."

VOTER APATHY IN HOUSTON
Back in the 2014 Midterm Elections for Harris County only 688,018 of the more than 2,044,361 registered voters in Harris County actually went to the polls to cast their vote. "Voter turnout has been dismal in Harris County as of late. We've gotta find creative ways to get folks engaged and involved," says Taylor. "
Back in the 2013 City of Houston Mayoral Election there were only 174,620 ballots cast in the race for Mayor of Houston according to information published on the Harris County District Clerk's website. "According to public information, the city of Houston had more than 953,380 registered voters back on Tuesday, November 5, 2013," explains Taylor. "And the fact that only 174,620 of those registered voters decided to go to the polls on Election Day speaks volumes," he proclaims.
