“Over the last few years, Greg Miller has covered more than half a dozen elections. Since 2004, he’s visited countless polling locations. He’s experienced disappointments and triumphs–as a voter, a citizen, and a witness to history in the making. 

Election days are among the hardest subjects Miller could have chosen to photograph; they require permissions and come with restrictions, and, at the end of the day, there’s no guarantee he’ll get a single picture he loves. Still, there’s nothing quite like Election Day. It’s a subject he returns to time and again. 

During these moments, Miller still thinks of his grandmother, who was thirteen when the 19th Amendment was ratified by Tennessee. With each passing year, he remembers the people he’s met–the first time voters, the poll inspectors, and everyone in between. ‘I am so grateful for the experience and for the generosity I have received from poll inspectors and voters over the years,’ he tells us.”
