The woman in the orange jacket, Cheryl Johnson, talks about her fellow running mates for the Local Advisory Council position. She talks to people on the street and asks if they have voted. She then points out liabilities around the community on her walk home with the videographers. The audio overwhelms at times and becomes staticky but this is temporary.

She goes into her house briefly and picks up her daughter and they continue to walk around the neighborhood while Cheryl Johnson talks to people and tells them to vote.
