ELECTION 2016: Richmond, California
on November 7, 2016
Election day is just around the corner. Before everything comes to a close, we walked around Richmond, stopping at Civic Center Plaza and Marina Bay, to ask residents what they thought about the upcoming vote.
Some residents had already voted; some were waiting for tomorrow. We asked them about local candidates, ballot measures, and the election process as a whole.
Their opinions differed, except when it came to one thing: the importance of exercising the right to vote.
