While every vote is important, it’s no secret that voters under the age of 40 will play a major role in deciding who the next president of the United States will be.

With election day right around the corner, Arts Nouveau Winston-Salem (ANWS), a part of The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, held a special block party to encourage young, creative people in the area to speak up and vote.

Along with providing an opportunity for people to register, the party, held at Activity on the Green on North Liberty Street, also featured a performances by the Carolina Stars Drumline, a DJ, games, food trucks and locally brewed beer for those over 21.

According to the arts council director of major gifts, Devon MacKay, the organization will be hosting other events to ensure young people in the area are registered and ready to make a difference on election day.

“ANWS wants to make sure that people get out and vote,” MacKay said.
