Amid the COVID-19 pandemic back in 2020, America faced a nationwide shortage of poll workers for the presidential election due to the fact that most poll workers are traditionally over the age of 61, and these volunteers weren’t able to be present, which ultimately led to fewer polling stations.
A polling station lists its hours of operation on its doors, signaling the beginning of another voting season for American citizens. As Nov. 8 draws closer, citizens of age should begin planning a visit to a polling station, to vote and to possibly volunteer. Photo courtesy of Elliott Stallion

The North Tower and South Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City collapsed during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. This photo was captured by MBU’s Heather Goodin just two days before America was changed forever. Notice the date stamp in the bottom right corner as this photo was shot with film.
