This woman has made it her mission to register voters.
84-year-old Barbara has been campaigning for Amy McGrath, a Congressional candidate in Kentucky. McGrath said Barbara has been one of her most persistent volunteers.
“Barbara is 84, and she knocked doors for our campaign this week. She was given 14 doors to knock yesterday, and she did eight before her legs gave out,” she tweeted. “When she returned to the office, she said, ‘I want to finish what I started. Can I please come back tomorrow?’ She was insistent.”
McGrath said Barbara came back the next day and succeeded in hitting her campaign quota.
Barbara told the team she’s determined to register voters to honor her uncle, who was a marine in WWII.
Democratic candidates have seen a rise in campaign volunteers this election. The app MiniVAN, which Democrats use to track door knocking, reports more than double the number of volunteers for the 2018 midterms than in the weekends leading up to the 2016 election.
According to Vote.org, 675,535 people registered to vote in 2016. This year, more than one million people are registered to vote.
Many people are thanking Barbara for her dedication to get out and vote on Twitter.
