IÕve been working at the polls on Saturdays, helping our community vote safely during the pandemic. People kept asking for I voted stickers, but they arenÕt handing them out this year because of Covid. I had I Voted stickers printed off and IÕve been handing them out and people absolutely love it - especially first-time voters. 

I truly feel like itÕs my responsibility to vote and take part in an election. Black women first had the right to vote in 1965. I was born in Ô56. My mother is deceased - she died in 1968. IÕm sure she never voted. So I vote for her.

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.
