Carla Gates said with all that is taking place in the world, it is important for her to vote this year.

“Anytime you know to vote is important to me but today was mostly important because of everything that is going on in the world,” said Gates. “I’m a mother, I have a son, I have a black son. So this means everything to me not just for him but you know the entire world as a whole.”
