Nuns on the Bus Blog - As the “We the People, We the Voters” tour of Nuns on the Bus wraps up, one aspect of my experience riding on the bus still intrigues me. From the very first day, what mystified me was the amount of energy we were feeling. “One huge swoosh of energy” was what I wrote at the end of that first day.
Nuns on the Bus Blog - Nuns on the Bus spent some time in Louisiana and Georgia before swinging up to the Mile High State to hold a Town Hall for the 100% and take part in early voting.

Nuns on the Bus Blog - Tuesday evening, after a Town Hall for the 100% at St. Peter's Catholic Church in Charlotte, N.C., the Nuns on the Bus went on a short break. They had spent four days in the state, which just had its restrictive voter registration laws ruled "OK" by the U.S. Supreme Court. The ruling on Wednesday overturns the Fourth Circuit Court's Oct. 1 reinstatement of same-day voter registration and out-of-precinct voting.
