About Stroll to the Polls
Concerned that over 46% of eligible voters failed to cast a ballot in the 2016 general election, Ramona Prioleau decided to start an organization that encourages civic participation ? which is central to democracy. That decision led Prioleau to launch Stroll to the Polls in 2018 to make the performance of democracy FUNctional.
To that end, Stroll to the Polls urges individuals and groups to not only fellowship at the polls; but also, to purchase FUNctional performance apparel and accessories.
Prioleau's inspiration for Stroll to the Polls is traced to Saturday morning church services in 2017. At that time, Saturday morning church services at her church were popular gatherings for parishioners to receive the gospel and engage in praise and worship. At church, Prioleau laid many of her concerns on the altar with an unwavering belief that "the Lord will make a way somehow." One of her concerns was finding a solution to voter apathy. After much prayer and deliberation, Prioleau was inspired to create Stroll to the Polls.
Prioleau's 2017 concept led to the 2018 launch of the nonpartisan organization Stroll to the Polls that, among other things, encourages voter registration and voter participation in every election as well as sells goods that support the operations of the nonprofit.
Stroll to the Polls is incorporated in New York State as a Not-for-Profit Corporation. Learn more at https://strolltothepolls.org/.
