People were rushing by Danforth middle school this morning without letting the rainy weather, halt their efforts to make a change in congress. Danforth is one of the many polling places across the county where people can get the opportunity to vote in the midterm elections.
People were stopping by before work to have their voice be heard. A voter says she wanted to make sure she felt represented in congress so that the country she loves could continue to be great because democracy means everything to her.
“This is the best country to live in today.” She says “If you don’t vote than don’t complain.”
Others wanted to ensure the safety of the future of their children by coming out and voting today. William Scott says his kids didn’t let him forget about his civil duty.
“Matter fact before I left the house today,” Scott says “they’re home like many students are today, and they said you’re going to vote and I said not before work, after work.”
Vivian herring a 75 year old woman notes the struggles of her ancestors in order for her to exercise her right to vote today and she wants younger generations to take advantage of that privilege.
“I feel that through the years I have seen alot,” Herring says “how we have fought for this right. and hopefully my grand kids and my kids will keep it up. Its so important because so many of our ancestors went through alot alot, even to the point of death to do this.”
