    AT CITY BBQ with Karen Holliman on a Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship-Youcanvote weekend dedicated to sharing Early Voting facts. Karen registered FIVE people (one who was in the parking lot and continued into the pet store) while I looked up two English as a Second Language Voters on youcanvote.org/voterlookup, who were worried about the status being annulled. In 5 seconds I could say, “Look, there you are ACTIVE status,” there were tears in our eyes! ALSO about a dozen-15 people sitting around visiting gladly discussed and asked questions about their friends and family, people who had moved, and can people still register on Nov. 8 (no). A number of people shared that they were carrying YOUCANVOTE materials to their churches that day to post onto their WEBSITES and to have ANNOUNCEMENTS made in the services and group meetings. I gladly share how Eno River UU Fellowship has been talking about voters rights in the services, in coffee hour and hosting partnerships with friends and other churches. There was a FRIENDLY feeling of SOLIDARITY and FOCUS without any rancor, fear-mongering or negativity! CITY BBQ, Hwy 54 at Fayetteville Rd, Friendly management, good food, good people!
