In October, I went to different neighborhoods in Camden to talk to residents and visitors about the presidential election. I found Trump, Clinton, and Stein supporters as well as people that were still undecided.
Every time I went out, I was joined by different people that helped do video and get people to be interviewed. Davelle did most of the editing, with Helyx, Milena, and I contributing as well. I targeted young adults and tried to get a diverse group of people to talk in front of the camera. I did find a Black man that was voting for Trump. He was concerned mostly about immigration. “They’re taking all the jobs!”, he said as an explanation. Technical difficulties prevented us from using that interview in the final video.
I also went between City Hall and the methadone clinic. I wanted to include various perspectives.
Next week, there will be a video out about the ballot question. I asked everyone I interviewed about that as well.
Remember to vote on Tuesday, November 8th. Polls are open 6am-8pm.
