Isabel Rios is standing outside the Fiesta Supermarket on Stassney Lane, approaching shoppers as they walk toward the store. It's the only early voting location near Dove Springs.
"Hola!" she says, walking toward a couple shoppers. "Hello. Votan? Votan, señoras?”
Rios is stumping for District 2 city council candidate Edward Reyes at Fiesta, the closest early voting location to the Dove Springs neighborhood. She and Reyes say their job has turned from campaigning to encouraging people to vote at all.
“Just talking and encouraging people to vote," Rios says. "Trying to engage people as we can.”
