For some states, the It Takes One weekend of action was a chance for volunteers to reach voters in their own neighborhoods. But for volunteers in other parts of the country, it was a chance to offer a helping hand to neighbor states.
Over 30 volunteers in downtown Chicago made the road trip to Dubuque, Iowa—part of the largest canvassing trip to Iowa since 2008. Check out some of the photos:
