As your Facebook memories may have alerted you, it's exactly one year after the 2016 elections. It's also a day after off-year elections in a handful of states seemed to indicate a changing tide, maybe? It seems like the right time to reflect with Springfield, IL lawyer and election judge Craig Colbrook, who literally drives around his precinct ensuring voting rights are being upheld for everybody. Last year, these are the songs that accompanied him on that drive. We talk about 2016, 2017, and 2018 and beyond, and some damn good music provides the soundtrack.
For complete songs, check out Craig's Spotify playlist.
