Voter participation is a big theme of the 2018 midterm elections. What kinds of voters will show up to the polls? Who will have access to a ballot? How long will lines be on Election Day?

A group called Color of Change is working to encourage more voter participation among Black voters.

Kortni Malone is a field director with Color of Change. The group is a political action committee working to get black voters out to for the election and other issues nationwide. Color of Change has been active putting together events in Detroit.

Malone joins Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson on Election Day to talk about the group’s efforts.
