FREEDOM REGISTRATION is a chance for Negroes in Mississippi to show the world that they want to register and vote.
It is the chance for Negroes in the state to show the government that they will register to vote if they are given the chance.
Here is how it will work:
FREEDOM REGISTRARS will register qualified Negroes in every county.
PEOPLE WHO REGISTER in the FREEDOM REGISTRATION will be able to vote in the FREEDOM VOTE.
