About Campaign Diaries

Throughout the 2004 election season, NPR will present an intimate first-person look at the campaign.

In a series called Campaign Diaries, we'll hear accounts from passionate volunteers, from professional campaign workers, typical voters and election bystanders, people who organize campaign events or drive voters to the polls.
