Canvassing in Fear, Voting with Faith

By Hadar Harris

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2005

The author reflects that the presidential election of 2004 was as much about fear about the process and results as it was faith in a vision of one's chosen candidate. Though many Americans are fearful of what happens now, the author concludes that we must have faith in the way the democratic process functions, the engagement of thousands of individuals in grassroots mobilization efforts, and the new voters who registered and cast their ballot for the first time.
