Amherst voters are bringing food and personal items to the polls to help people in need.

The Amherst Survival Center placed barrels at each of the polling places, including the one at the Bang Center, site of three precinct polling places.

Voters are asked to bring non-perishable food along with personal items such as a tooth brush and soap.

It’s hoped that the predicted thirty percent voter turnout will be reflected in acts of generosity.

Since polls don’t close until 8 p.m. Amherst voters still have time to donate to meet the needs of the less fortunate.
