7. I voted today.
I got there about 3:30 pm and it was very busy. I talked to some of the workers and they were exhausted. They expected to be busy but not that busy.
This is my personal get out the vote project - I have lived in the same area of the city for more than 20 years and go to the same drug stores, grocery stores, coffee shop, gas station, etc. all of the time. A couple of days ago I printed off copies of the early voting hours and locations. I have distributed them to the employees at all of these businesses. I know that the asst. manager at one grocery posted it where the employees clock in/out. I had two people at the grocery store ask me if I had the Wake county info so I came home, printed it off, and took them copies.
I know most of these employees by name and a little something about them. I am aware that several of them take the bus to work so I have quietly asked them if they need a ride to the polls. I have a growing list of people that I will be picking up at their homes on their day off and taking them (and up to three neighbors/friends) to vote.
Tomorrow I am meeting up with a young man I talked to at the coffee shop who turns 18 on Oct. 30th. He did not think he was eligible to vote. I told him that he was and I would bring him more info. He got really excited so perhaps he went home and looked it up. Anyway, I will see him tomorrow.
