January 16, 2019 was the culminating event for our V.I.S.A. project. Participants registered and voted on issues of importance to them, e.g. "Should There be a Hate Crime Law" in the state of South Carolina? Voting history was reviewed by Wendell Roberson, Sr., Deputy Director of the Board of Voter Registration and Elections of Beaufort County and our partner in our V.I.S.A. program. Participants registered, voted and celebrated with not only and "I Voted" sticker but with an "I Voted" cake.

Beginning in February or March, The Bluffton Boys & Girls Club will start the V.I.S.A. Club; monthly meetings throughout the year that will introduce issues of social importance to the youth, issues that can be addressed via voting!
