The Keenest Observers: Votes And Barriers

Mark Buckawicki/Wikimedia

The Keenest Observers are often the people who stand outside a group or situation. 

So that's the name we've given to our occasional explorations of conditions and experiences of people who might be considered outside the mainstream within our region. 

Robert Goodwin returns to host The Keenest Observers, focusing on voter participation in America, and how the effects can break differently in the population, depending upon skin color and other differences.

The topic weaves the legalization of marijuana into the nuances of a simple question: "Does my vote count?" We invite you to join in the conversation.
