NABOB, NAACP and AURN announce joint campaign to 'Get Out the Vote'

(September 19, 2014) The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters (NABOB) American Urban Radio Networks (AURN) and the NAACP have partnered to produce and distribute a national radio campaign encouraging African Americans to both register and vote in the upcoming mid-term elections. "It's important we build on the momentum from the 2012 presidential election when record numbers of African Americans showed up at the polls to vote," said Jerry Lopes, AURN President of Program Operations and Affiliations.
 
NAACP Board Chair Roslyn Brock and President and CEO Cornell William Brooks voice the 30 second messages encouraging African Americans to register to vote up through October 6, 2014 registration deadline and then vote on Election Day November 4, 2014.

"Voting is not a social luxury, it is our civic responsibility," stated NAACP President and CEO Cornell William Brooks.  "Ensuring that all Americans have access to the ballot box protects the bedrock of our democracy. For the 2012 election, the NAACP registered more than 374,000 new voters and mobilized 1.2 million citizens to the ballot and we have no intentions of taking these 2014 mid-term elections off. We are excited to partner with AURN and NABOB in galvanizing a strong turnout from communities of color this November" said Brooks.

"We are pleased to be part of this important campaign," said Jim Winston, Executive Director of NABOB. "We will use our considerable influence to make sure every urban formatted radio station in the country airs these messages, and we will make them available to stations at our upcoming conference in Washington, DC."

Stations may access the radio messages by going to http://webftp.aurn.com (user name GOTV/ password vote 2014).  Phase one of the campaign will be available up through October 6, 2014, and phase two will be available October 7, 2014 through the November 4, 2014 elections. Each phase of the campaign will contain six separate 30 second messages.
