Voters of NC – Maria

Maria Adams


I’ve been working at the polls on Saturdays, helping our community vote safely during the pandemic. People kept asking for “I Voted” stickers, but they aren’t handing them out this year because of COVID. I had “I Voted” stickers printed off and I’ve been handing them out and people absolutely love it – especially first-time voters. 

I truly feel like it’s my responsibility to vote and take part in an election. Black women first had the right to vote in 1965. I was born in ‘56. My mother is deceased – she died in 1968. I’m sure she never voted. So I vote for her.
