When voters go to the polls in San Diego on Election Day, many of them will be greeted by a big-rig driver.
Boyd Applegate hauls freight for a living, but each Election Day he comes home to volunteer at the polls.
Boyd has worked nearly every election — primary and general — for the past 20 years.
And he spoke with his sister, Rhonda Dixon, for StoryCorps.
Boyd won the Goodyear Highway Hero Award in 1993 for saving 3 people from auto accidents.
Listen here to Boyd speaking about his volunteer work as a real-beard Santa Claus.
