Today’s love is for voters. And for the untold sacrifices generations of people made so that we could all have the right to go to the polls today. In their memory, ColorLines’ Hatty Lee put together the images below. Scroll through them, but make sure you’ve shown your own love by casting a ballot before the end of polling time in your state. Get more info on how to do so here.
