It’s an American’s civic duty to cast their vote.
Some go beyond that.
These are the volunteers that put together the small precinct at Highland Acres.
Some have been here longer than they remember.
“Ummm I guess it was 2002 or 2004 maybe?” says James Fay, Volunteer.
Some brand new.
“I started this and the primaries in June,” says Beth, volunteer.
All loving and hating it at the same time.
“No it’s fun. Get to see my neighbors… but if somebody said gosh I would love to get involved with that I’d say hey here’s my card go for it,” says Fay.
And can you blame them?
They start the morning at six, are here until seven, and don’t forget lunch, because they can’t even leave.
“We probably won’t be home until 11,” says Fay.
Luckily these guys planned ahead.
Potlucks and caffeine after a pact to come back.
“Yea we all worked so well together that we all made a pact that we have to come back,” says Beth.
But as for the next election?
Well… maybe now isn’t the best time to be asking that.
“Don’t ask me that because I’m questioning it myself,” Fay says laughing.
You know I talked to some of the volunteers that worked there yesterday.
They said they were exhausted as expected but they were very happy to see a steady stream of people all day even at their small precinct.
