Pat Walker, Stone Mountain: “I didn’t vote in DeKalb County because I didn’t know anybody was up for election. I follow national politics, I did follow Kasim Reed, but I don’t follow DeKalb Co. The problem with DeKalb Co. is that they are so embroiled with the CEO and his problems and all of that stuff and I was sort of turned off.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Shanee Richardson, Atlanta: “I did not vote this week simply because I did not make time for it. No excuses. I’ve been registered for a while. Honestly, I say the Presidential elections are of more interest to me than the metro or city. I just didn’t make time for it.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
John Williams, Atlanta: “[I didn’t participate in the vote] because I am a convicted felon. I’ve been doing good for about five or six years, I haven’t committed a felon in about six years and I still couldn’t vote and I would like to vote.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Quinton O, Atlanta: “I didn’t participate because… when you do vote them in they don’t do anything after you get them into office.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Robert Grant, Atlanta: “I didn’t know it was an election. Maybe I should be more politically active.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
