Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 3, 2008
PLS Financial Services has joined forces with V103-FM (WVAZ-Chicago) to promote voter registration in the Chicago area. PLS, which manages more than 80 PLS Loan Store, PLS Check Cashers and PLS Tax Service locations in Illinois, is kicking off registration drives at three of its Chicago-area locations on Friday, October 3.
Headlining the event will be live V103-FM remote broadcasts -- featuring on-air personalities -- at each of the three locations. Broadcasting live from PLS locations will be Troi Tyler from 10am to 2pm at 5200 W. North Avenue (North and Laramie) in Chicago; Doug Banks from 2pm to 6pm at 1431 W. 127th Street in Calumet Park; and Ramonski and Joe from 6pm to 9pm at 2507 W. 95th Street (95th and Western) in Evergreen Park.
"We're thrilled to be partnering with V103-FM on our registration drive," said PLS President Bob Wolfberg. "Together, we're going to make sure that more of the citizens in the neighborhoods in which we operate are registered and can exercise their right to vote in November."
V103-FM is a Clear Channel Communications, Inc. station playing "Today's R&B and Old School."
PLS invites the public to visit its locations during the broadcasts to share in the excitement, and to help motivate community members who are not registered to vote. Listeners are encouraged to come to any one of the three participating locations on Friday to register. The official deadline for registration is October 6.
