Fraternity members will drive from this location to the Harris County Polling site located at Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church on 3810 Ruth St. at Scott St.

Omega Psi Phi Fraternity members, family, and friends are encouraged to come out and support this event. For those who are registered voters in Harris County and still need to vote, we encourage those to use their civic voices by voting.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage people to follow the CDC guidelines of wearing a mask, practicing social distances, washing/sanitizing hands, and staying home if feeling ill.
