Working the Polls for Boucher


    I just finished working the polls in Big Stone Gap for Rick Boucher.  When I voted at 10:00 this morning, more than 400 people had already voted in my precinct. Turn out is much higher than in 2008 when I worked as Wise County Field Organizer for Obama. I am a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the chest down. I worked by myself from 10 to 3 handing out around 300 flyers and sample ballots.I probably missed talking to 100 or so other voters as I was rolling around trying to get to everyone.  Roughly two thirds of the people I talked too expressed positive opinions of Boucher. I even managed to change the minds of a couple of people voting against Obama. All in all, it was a very productive and uplifting day at the polls. From what I’ve been told, turn out is running high all over Wise County.
