Democracy In “Action”

The man with the clipboard steps in front of us as we’re about to cross the street. “Are you a registered voter in Brooklyn?”

He wants us to sign his petition to get a candidate on the ballot, but when we see who it is (an extreme left-wing candidate whose presence will serve only to split the vote and allow for a greater chance of a right-wing win) we almost hand him the clipboard back, but we give each other a look and sigh.

“Everybody gets a chance,” Katie mutters, signing, and I do the same.
