Obama Campaign Doing Voter Registration At Bus Transfer Centers

Going through Cedar Grove last Tuesday afternoon, there were young people doing voter registration. They had red forms with white trim on clipboards. I thought it suspicious that they spoke to the people around me but never came to me.

This evening at Pembroke East someone came...and identified himself. It was an Obama Campaign volunteer. He registered one lady waiting for the bus who had never voted before (bravo!), and we had a short chat.

Before someone points a finger at Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) over it, let me point out neither transfer center is HRT-owned property. They came and registered. Given bus demographics, they're probably getting more Democrats than Republicans.
