Interview with Dolores Torres
QUESTION 5
INTERVIEWER:

Just describe how those elections worked.

DOLORES TORRES:

We have elections like in any other primary election. We had trucks going around, we were speaking to people coming into the office. We rode around speaking on a loudspeaker in the streets, we had people campaigning for us. We made sure that nobody that voted, rather anybody that did vote for us, was a vo—you know, was a registered voter. We had like a regular election, like a politician has. We knew what the problems were because we lived there, and we felt that with the people's help, that we could make a change.
