During the fall I registered voters, helped felons restore their voting rights, reminded many to vote, and told people where they could vote early, safely, and without waiting in line. I sat in a Black barber shop, socially distanced with a mask, and talked about the relevance of each person’s vote. Some Black men expressed fear of going to the polls. I volunteered at the polls on November 3rd, outside, with a mask. All was peaceful.
