    I was at the DMV on Martin Luther King this morning (Monday August 22) . I arrive around 7:00 am and the line was already starting to form. People were also getting out their cards.

    As I manage to go the line and talk to each individual and asked them were they Register to VOTE and most of them said they had register to VOTE. So I pass each them a Orange Card explaining to them new changes and just about all of them were very appreciate of what I was telling them.

    The DMV line is a very long line but I manage to go the down the line pretty quickly and talk to just about everybody.

    So when I completed my shift I stop over at McDonald to get me a cup of coffee and buy me something eat. While I was line and as I got ready to pay. I heard someone holler and said I am paying for this. I turn around it was one of men in the line He told me he heard how I was explaining to everyone about the changes to the VOTER ID Law. How I had smile on my face so early in the morning. I think everybody in McDonald heard what he said. All I could say was thank-you and I really appreciate that. It made me feel really good that someone was taking notice to what youcanvote.org is all about.
