Voter Registration at Saturday's Folk & Roots Fest

Report from Jennifer:
Volunteers registered more than 55 voters at last Saturday's Folk & Roots Festival in Lincoln Square. The question, "Are you currently registered to vote at your current address?" (repeated over and over throughout the day) encouraged many to be sure they were ready to vote on November 2.

A grassroots volunteer committee, known loosely as VR Kerry ('VR' for Voter Registration) and organized by Chicagoan Cara Hendrickson, has been attending Democratic-leaning events across the city in preparation of the November election. The Folk & Roots Festival was Saturday's choice.

Saturday's volunteers included: Maryann, Aaron, Cherie, Diane, Karen, Kathy, and Jennifer.
