Ruth M. Gee, 68
Northampton County, NC
I feel like it’s important because voting is a privilege. People died for it. People are still fighting for it, even today. I’m 68 and I’ve been voting since I was 18. I’ve never missed an election – ever. Being a woman, a black woman, a human being – I make a difference. Unfortunately, there are still people who don’t believe their votes count. Most people complaining are people who were born here, raised here. People who come here from other places, they value it more than we do.
