    Recently I was passing out voting information and a man sadly shook his head and said, “I can never vote, I’ve got a felony.” I asked if this was recent and was he on probation. He said, “No, I paid my debt long ago.” When I told him he could vote he replied with a huge smile and said, “Then let’s get me registered.”

    Stories of citizens who thought they could never vote becoming registered voters.

    Stories of people who thought they would be unable to vote because of lack of ID.

    Stories of people being truly grateful for our information.

    Stories of volunteers making new friends or encountering friends they haven't seen in years! 

    Stories of humor & joy from all the different people we encounter. 

    Stories of patience, kindness, and acceptance.  

    Please take a minute to tell us a story!

    Great videos. Clear advice, what to do and what to avoid. Also great rationales about why we provide this information and why we need to interact this way. I feel much more confident that I can do this now. Thank you for all the time and effort that went into these videos.
