Share Your Election Day Story

He represents the nation as it is, and as it
aspires to be. – LA Times

"Aspiration" by Aaron Douglas (1936)

We volunteered for Obama’s Campaign for Change this weekend! Frieda made calls to Virginia voters from her living room, while I canvassed and worked with a phonebank in North Carolina. My partner was an elderly black woman named Ethel who has been going door-to-door for Obama since the summer primary. She was sweet, funny, and fantastically persistent. Afterward, I moved to the phones and met a retired black man who told me he voted for Bush in the last election (“…for religious reasons”). But he was disgusted with the Republican party, and impressed enough with Barack to make calls on his behalf. My contribution seemed small compared to the work of these volunteers, but I feel proud to have been involved. And it’s not too late for you to participate too…
