Protesters in Ferguson Are Registering Voters

A man walking down West Florissant Street is carrying water bottles in a wheelbarrow with a sign that reads “Voter Forms and Water.” Elad Gross, president of the Education Exchange Corps, a nonprofit that works with at-risk youth, is soliciting protesters and other residents walking down the road. “The idea is empowerment, but also to make sure that no one passes out today,” he says.

On Sunday, a woman with a clipboard was registering voters in the aisles of a church before a rally led by Al Sharpton.
