We are staff members for a political campaign, and on top of our other duties, we often work 4-12 hours per day "doorbelling" in 100+ degree weather. We've likely knocked on your door! Although we may be biased towards our candidate, we mostly hand out pamphlets and remind people to send their primary ballots in before Aug. 5: short and sweet.
To those who have given us water on sweltering days -- thank you -- you are our guardian angels. To those who graciously take our cards -- thank you. To those who are mean, slam doors in our face, or have hateful or vicious comments, please remember: We are humans, we have feelings, and aren't trying to pester you. We only want you to be an informed voter.
