A few blocks away from the only Planned Parenthood for hundreds of miles, Samantha Fields walks around the neighborhood on a sunny afternoon. She knocks on the doors of the addresses listed in a packet. There’s no answer at most houses.

Then, someone answered. Fields asks the college-aged man if he had heard about the upcoming May 1 election. He had, but he wasn’t sure if or how he planned to vote on the only measure on the ballot.
