Fort Myers, FL- A local organization is holding a concert this weekend to encourage voter registration.
Their goal is to have you vote for the human rights referendum on the ballot november eighth.
The wording has some confused, so Sarah Pusateri went to downtown Fort Myers to clear it up.
Resident Mary Davis says, "It makes absolutely no sense."
Confusion- that was the reaction from mary davis to the human rights referendum on the november 8th ballot.
"It's difficult to understand what is motivating this."
The ballot reads "the city shall have no ordinance or policy which discriminates against persons having reached the age of majority- 18.
Something Raimond Aulman, the owner of the Indigo Room, believes is an issue in the City of Fort Myers.
"They do have an ordinance in the city that says if you are under 21 you can't go into certain establishments if there is alcohol present."
He says that ordinance is bad for business and some owners agree.
Owner of Howl Gallery Tattoo Andy Howl says, "It's a business issue. Pushing people away from downtown."
Owner of EnSite Inc. Jeff Roman says, "If you are an adult and you are 18 years old, you should be able to do what you choose to do."
Aulman says, "They don't mind sending them overseas to get thier legs blown off in Afghanistan but here their civil liberties are diminished."
Even if the referendum passes, it doesn't necessarily mean those under 21 will be allowed in bars.
Attorney Joe Viacava says, "There's nothing guaranteed in law as we all know but this is a great first step."
A step towards something, that might not be clear when your in the voting booth.
