Story Narrative:

Speaker 1: Do you have a special story about voting?

Speaker 2: In 2008, I canvased for the Obama campaign, and a group of volunteers went door to door and spoke with people in their homes about the upcoming election, and we let people know exactly when and where they could vote and getting people to vote, making sure that they know the locations and the hours is very important because voting is one of the most important roles that citizens have in a democracy.
