This morning I passed out the Democratic slate at my Wyoming polling place on Oak from 6:30-8:30 am. I put a Wende Cross for Judge sign in the ground. In all the years I have been distributing literature at the poll on Oak at 6:30 am I have never seen the line wrap around the building. It was magnificent. Yolanda Lauderdale was there handing out literature for Wende Cross.

On October 28, 2020, the some members of the Wyoming Dem Club participated in a “honk and wave” on Springfield Pike. I was there with my vote mask and Wende Cross for Judge sign.
