ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Dozens of Central Florida churches are getting together to help increase the number of black early voters.

This Sunday, pastors are getting together to put parishioners on a bus and take them to the polls.

Pastor Derrick McRae pf the Experience Christian Center is one of dozens of church leaders in Central Florida helping the black community vote early.

“Souls to the Polls has historically been the time the African-American community comes together and votes very strong,” he said.

He expects hundreds of black voters to show up to vote.

He said in 2012, 800 people boarded buses and were taken to vote.

“Usually we kind of wait for that great time with the church when all the church members come together,” McRae said.
