The Reverend Jarrett Maupin has spent all day getting out the vote and offering would-be voters a ride to the polls.
With just hours to go before the polls close, he's running the Maupin motorcade throughout Arizona's 7th Congressional District -- a seat he isn't favored to win.
The reverend is running against political heavyweights Mary Rose Wilcox, a former county supervisor, and Ruben Gallego, a former state representative. Although an underdog, Maupin isn't letting up. Randy Camacho, a southwest Valley teacher and author, is also running in the Democratic primary.
"We're making the rounds, we have sound trucks out," Maupin says. "Our goal is to spend a few minutes at every polling place."
He's planning repeat visits to those with higher voter turnout.
"We have 15 volunteers who are continuing to make calls and remind people to vote," he says, adding that they started at 6:30 a.m. and will continue for about another hour, until 6:30 p.m.
"We've hit senior housing in Guadalupe, and delivered donuts to poor families in south Glendale this morning," he says. "Team Maupin gives it everything we've got, and on this election day, we're giving it even more. We're busy telling them to keep the faith!."
