First Time Poll Workers Fighting for Democracy

As a first-time poll worker this year, Mae Tesh from Asheville, North Carolina says, "I try to acknowledge the privilege that I have to be able to work the polls; I'm pretty young, I'm not high risk. And I think this election is incredibly important. I would hate for a lack of workers that certain polling to shut polling places down, so people wouldn't be able to go there to easily cast their vote. And I think it is a passion thing because I am a political science major, but I would do it even if I had to skip classes because it's just really important to me."

Vogue worked with poll-worker recruitment organization Power the Polls to speak to eight first-time poll workers across America—from Austin to Omaha to Birmingham and beyond—about what motivated them to become poll workers, why their volunteer work matters, and what kind of country they hope to come of age in.

During the 2020 lockdown and unusual confinement in my high rise New York City apartment, I turned the camera on myself to examine my day to day behavior. I am aware that others are feeling similarly. Expressing these feelings visually helps me cope with the mild depression and anxiety concerning the pandemic, politics, and quality of life going forward. In the photo above, I am writing postcards to registered voters around the country, urging them to exercise their right to vote, and giving them specific information about where and how to submit their ballots.

Puerto Rico, a colony of the United States, is directly affected by the elections in the US. Puerto Rico's government is also ruled by a two-party system. However, this year, a third of the electorate rejected this system, voting instead for independent candidates and the candidate of the pro-independence party. Many of these votes came from youth hoping to change the status quo, building on the momentum of the summer 2019 protests that ousted governor Roselló Nevarez.

Rep. Jamaal Bowman, NY-16 Congressional District

New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York.

Jamaal Bowman, founder and first principal of the Cornerstone Academy for Social Action (CASA) a public school located in the north-eastern neighborhood, Baychester in the Bronx, speaks to a crowd of 90-110 people during a rally organized by The Young Turks’ founder Cenk Uygur, with the goal to help organize local progressive activists with the tools and literature to help educate their communities in New York City and greater New York area, at the New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, September 9, 2019. Bowman has taken a page out of the Bronx Progressive Democrats playbook after announcing his official run for office on June 18th of 2019, where he will be running his insurgent campaign to unseat the 30-year veteran democrat Eliot Engel in the NY-16 Democratic Congressional District, a district that occupies a portion of the Bronx and Westchester County.
