Patricia Dyette, 66

Fayetteville, NC 

It was a good feeling. It’s a good vibe out here. People are excited. I don’t know who they’re voting for, but they’re excited to vote. It’s important to me to vote because of my ancestors. My ancestors died for the right. Our rights have blood on them. We just got the right to vote 65 years ago. John Lewis, Martin Luther King, Jr. John Lewis’ blood lays on the Pettus Bridge. We should always vote because we stand on their backs.
