The 66-year-old man vowed to live on a roof until 500 of his neighbors in Sandtown cast their ballots in the primary election.
After five days, he's back on the ground having reached that goal.
Elder Harris, a life-long Sandtown resident and pastor of Newborn Community of Faith church, lived on top of the Jubilee Arts building to make a statement and inspire others to get out and vote.
He decided to make the point after learning the last mayoral election showed voter turnout was only 7 percent in his neighborhood.
Harris said he wanted to show his community, especially the young people, that voting is a non-violent way to protest and make change. He said more than 522 residents told him they had voted.
