Congressman Elijah Cummings tells a very moving story of what he saw at a polling station recently in his district in Baltimore. It captures beautifully what this election is about. A woman close to 90 years of age says she is voting for the last time in her life. She entrusts Rep. Cummings with the message she wants to pass on the baton to the next generation, and Rep. Cummings shares that message with us.
While expressing the reverence and love he has for this woman, Rep. Cummings also points woman would not have been able to vote with the kind of voter ID laws passed in some states this year.
A must for anyone who's thinking about not voting this year. This is part of my new documentary series, Story of America: A Nation Divided.
