This election isn't just any election

I'm working on a voter protection hotline tonight.

I just got off the phone with a young man in Knox County, Ohio, who arrived at his polling place at 11:30 am, and did not vote until 7 pm. When he left the polling place at 7 pm, the line was 150 voters longer than it was when he'd arrived.

Does that tell you something?

Anyways, I'm Crystal and we met in April at the March to Abolish Poverty. my blog is at

I just wanted to say hi and thanks for your hard work.
