By the midterm elections earlier this month, Ms. Morris’s house had become ground zero for a get-out-the-vote operation that drew dozens of volunteers from across the South Fork. Main Street Conversations and its friends had become a well-oiled political-action machine, one of several local political groups and single volunteers energized to resist the Trump presidency from its beginning by supporting his opposition on Election Day.
