Eduardo Sainz was standing at the front door of a home in Tucson, Arizona, encouraging the family inside to vote when the young man and his mom asked for a favor that under the state’s current law would make him a felon.
Sainz, state director of the Latino advocacy group Mi Familia Vota, said neither the young man, who was in a wheelchair, nor his mother had a car or the time needed to mail their ballots before Arizona’s gubernatorial election in 2014. They asked Sainz to drop off their ballots on his way home – and he agreed.
