Interview with Dolores Torres

Just describe how those elections worked.


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.
