Get-out-the-vote organizers also point out that many people who come to the polls today may have already been registered, but simply haven’t been consistent voters.

During a rally that was held on Monday night, no particular candidate was endorsed; Instead, everyone there talked about the need for people to exercise their right to vote and be engaged with the political process.
