This year, StoryCorps is providing us with three audio interviews — two of which have never before been publicly aired — to represent the range of political experiences in this country. Two of the interviews focus of African-American citizens in the South fighting to be able to place their ballot; the third, on the lighter side, tells the story of an election that was settled with a coin toss.
