I carry a clip board with voter registrations forms with me wherever I go. I learned that from Dr. Reid Sr. Since 2015 when I first connected with the Reids and 90for90, I’ve seen a few of my very good friends switch from voting Republican (you know, the dark side) to voting Democratic.
I’ve seen Libertarian neighbors go from never voting to actually showing up at the polls. I’ve come to notice how voting matters to people. Just the act itself. Win, lose, or draw, they participated.
I learned a lot from both of the Dr. Reid’s about what a privilege it is to vote and how I should never take that privilege for granted or waste it.
Dr. Reid was out registering voters when there were poll taxes and literacy tests.
Dr. Reid was out registering Black voters and getting them to the polls when there were no Black candidates to vote for.
Happy Birthday Dr. Reid!!
