    At an event in Heritage Square, I had the good fortune of encountering a young Hispanic man, who was very enthusiastic about registering to vote. After assisting him in filling out his registration I learned that just the prior day he had been sworn in as a US Citizen and was overexcited to participate in our electoral system. I was honored!

    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.
