Matthi Shalev, born and raised in Kibbutz, Israel, stands outside of an early voting site in the University Mall on Thursday, Oct. 22, 2020. "I've been here for eight hours today," Shalev said. "I feel energized. I can't wait. I'm anxious. I want my life back." Shalev, who is retired, says he joined the Orange County Democrats campaign months ago on behalf of all the people with jobs who cannot. "I feel crazy," Shalev said. "This is beyond any differences between ideology or anything with substance. It's just about sanity and regular life."
