HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s niece was in Hampton Monday evening talking about the importance of voting.
"We want everyone to get out and vote and to vote God's values, so we say, 'Vote His values,'" Dr. Alveda King said.
King spoke at Hampton Christian Elementary School and stressed following religious beliefs when voting. The presentation was part of the Concerned Women for America She Votes 2012 project.
The conservative CWA is the nation's largest public policy women's organization.
A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
