Me: 1. What motivated you to vote?
Ms. Boykin: My grand daughter goes to Temple and told me Joe Sestak was personally handing out flyers. That showed dedication I had to go vote.
Me: 2. Do you vote every election?
Ms. Boykin: I vote at every Presidential Election.
Me: Do you know why we vote on Tuesday's ?
Ms. Boykin: Yes! Because they assume I don't have anything else to do. Just kidding, I remember asking my dad why, and I think he said something like way back , people went downtown all the time on Tuesdays to go to the markets. It was the most busy day so they kept it on Tuesdays, to keep a strong vote turnout.
Me: Where do you encounter the most campaigning ads?
Ms. Boykin: On Tv and on my dag' gon porch!
Me: Did you learn about voting in school?
Me: Are you always sure of who you are going to vote for when you walk into the booth or do you deliberate in the booth?
Ms. Boykin: Most of the time I know because I mainly go vote during Presidential Elections.
Me: Thank you so much for your time Ms.Boykin.
Ms. Boykin: No problem.
Here it is.
