Voters of NC – Earl

By Eleanore Wood | November 5, 2020

Earl Bradley Durham, NC I voted for Biden because he’s for helping the people instead of leaving us out there to dry. And he’s for raising the minimum wage, which we need to raise to $15/hr.  Because at $7.25/hr we can’t live off of that. Only reason I say we can’t live off of that…

Chyna Hammonds, 21 College student Pembroke, NC  I feel good about voting today and it’s very important because it’s rights, basically my human rights. So it was like, this year has been very tough for everyone, especially the African-American community and the LGBTQ plus community service. That’s why it’s important for me to vote. Photo…

Voters of NC – Darius

Darius McCall, 22 College student, theater major Pembroke, NC Voting was difficult, but they were being very nice. It was hard for me because I guess I’m not registered. They removed my registration for whatever reason. So I did a provisional vote, but I mean, the way I saw it really didn’t matter. I needed…

Voters of NC – Aaron

By Eleanore Wood | November 5, 2020

Aaron Goldston, 58 Siler City, NC I think it’s a good thing to vote. If you can make a change, make one. I think everyone should have a voice. Everything is not in our hands anyway. It’s in God’s hands, but we’re part of that. He put us here. So I vote for who I…

Maranda K. Jack, 24 Fayetteville, NC I actually feel really anxious. I only voted probably like twice in my life before, this being the second one. So yeah, I’m just anxious and I’m trying to do my part and use my voice the best way. For me as a black woman here, trying to raise…

Voters of NC – Maria

By Eleanore Wood | November 5, 2020

Maria Gomez Flores, 24 Siler, City, NC I just can’t fathom people knowing how the family separations at the border – it’s a way to disincentivise immigration, but it’s causing mass separations among children from their families. 545 of the kids separated from their families, they couldn’t  find their parents. So my voting is based…

Voters of NC – Tia

Tia Powell Morrisville, NC “I thought about the first time I voted.  I believe that’s when Obama was running for president. I was on campus at school and it was a monumental occasion for it to be my first time voting and first time there was an African-American president to vote for. So I felt…

Voters of NC – Bryant

By Eleanore Wood | November 5, 2020

Bryant Parroquin, 23 Pittsboro, NC Where is this country heading? You see the news and it seems like everyone is preparing for the worst no matter what happens. In my community, immigration is always important. It’s very stressful seeing everything that goes on as far as families being split apart and things like that. I…
