"It was a great experience talking to my neighbors & co workers about the importance of voting & reminding them. Also not to forget their voting cards and ID."

"Although I voted I still push my community those who hasn't voted to do so."

"I was very impressed of myself that I did something to the community helping person to vote letting them know the rules on this election because of the virus. I did a great job and proud of my self. Also teach out to the Ella Austin community center seniors."
