BALTIMORE — Black Girls Vote is taking over seven local Starbucks across Baltimore City to register voters and conduct voter education.

They were at the Starbucks on Saint Paul Street Thursday morning. Organizers hope this movement will encourage Marylanders to amplify their voice with their vote.

"Its been a pretty interesting conversation but with us being a non-partisan organization no matter if you're republican, democrat, or independent its been extra healthy political conversations we've been having," said Tenne Thrower, Special Projects Lead, Black Girls Vote, Inc.

On Friday, the organization will take over the Starbucks on N. Charles Street from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

On Saturday, they'll be at the Starbucks on Roland Avenue from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
