COLORADO SPRINGS– Hundreds of socially-distant people attended the “Respect My Vote” event in Colorado Springs on Saturday.

The event, organized by Colorado Springs locals, was created to encourage people to vote – regardless of political affiliation.

The special guest speaker was Isaac Newton Farris, Jr., the nephew of Martin Luther King Jr.

“I won’t tell you who to vote for… but I will tell you – you must vote! You must vote! You must vote!” said Farris, Jr.

Tony Exum Jr. and band members played tunes as many watched from lawn chairs.

A voter registration booth and census booth were at the event.

They plan to host more events in the future.
