Gallery: Voices from the polls
November 4, 2020
After voting on Nov. 3, people throughout Illinois have posed for portraits and some have given statements on the importance of voting.
Leo Wilson, a voter at the Carbondale Civic Center, said, “It means everything, it means our civil rights. It means everything that we’ve been fighting for the last 50 or 60 years. We might start chipping away at the block now. We will keep on, we’ll just keep on, there won’t be a bad reaction. We are going to be alright but we have to keep on moving towards the goal.”
