One of our intiatives during early voting is called "Souls to the Polls" where we get houses of faith and other faith based orgs to get their people out to vote on the Sunday during the early voting period. I volunteered to ferry people from one of our transitional housing projects to the nearest early voting sites.
These are people who are trying to get off the streets and just need some help. Most are chemical dependent but they have to be clean to stay in the housing. We had a voter registration drive at these projects last month and now we were getting them to vote. I took several people to vote for the first time today. You could see the pride in their faces when they walked out with their early voting stickers on. It brought tears to my eyes.
