- Two neighborhoods in St. Louis each tell a very different story about politics
- Al James' lives in an area known as Jeff-Vander-Lou while Drew Burke lives in St. Charles
In the weeks leading up to the presidential election, CNN toured the nation in a retro-fitted Air Stream camper to give voters a chance to speak their mind about the election. The drivers of the CNN #MyVote camper, Al James and Drew Burke, both grew up in the St. Louis area: James, who is black, grew up on the city's north side; Drew, who is white, lived in the suburbs across the river from St. Louis County. While both men live in the same region, they had very different experiences and perceptions of the city. The video tells their stories.
