(WMC-TV) - Sunday voters, city leaders, and candidates for the District 91 seat, formerly held by Lois DeBerry, came together at a local meeting.

The First Baptist Church on Broad Avenue hosted Sunday's forum.

According to Pastor Keith Norman, several different issues were discussed. Specifically, residents focused on voter registration, how to vote, and where to vote.

The referendums, including the pre-K sales tax, were also focused on at the meeting.

Candidates for DeBerry's seat, Libertarian Jim Tomask and Democrat Raumesh Akbari, took time to speak with voters.
