Wadden rang more than a dozen doorbells in her first hour canvassing a tidy neighborhood before stopping to take stock of her progress. Only a handful of voters were home, and, of them, only one agreed to have a ballot mailed to him so he can vote early. “I wouldn't do this for pay. It'd be too discouraging,” said the 70-year-old retired principal. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall)
