Postcards informing citizens of how to vote are lined up on a desk. Palo Alto High School students sent these postcards through the nonprofit organization Reclaim Our Vote in an effort to reduce voter suppression. “We wrote to people in voter suppression states not telling them which party to vote for, but just giving them voting information so that the election was more fair,” said the club’s co-president Bella Daly.
