There are plenty of gimmicks out there that are being employed in order to get people to the polls for the 2018 midterm elections.

As per usual, Hollywood has been out in full force, lending the weight of the cult of celebrity to the cause.

In a first-of-its-kind event, more than 50 actors, comedians and YouTube stars will join a two-hour, live-streamed telethon on Monday night aimed at firing up younger voters, the age group least likely to cast a ballot.

Stars will not ask for money during the “Telethon for America.” Instead, they will urge viewers to call in to a celebrity phone bank and pledge to vote the next day.

Comedian Chelsea Handler, who left her Netflix talk show a year ago to focus on activism, said she believes young people expect “older, more responsible adults” will act to solve problems through government.

For something a bit more practical, however, we turn to “Pizza To The Polls”.

Trending: Pelosi’s Letter to Dems Makes Clear It Is ‘Dangerous’ to Let Election Decide Who Will Be POTUS

A nonprofit  called “Pizza to the Polls” is delivering pies to voters across the nation this midterm election.  It’s soliciting images of crowded voting locations through social media to determine where the reinforcements are needed.

The group said on Saturday, the last before Election Day,  it sent 119 pies to 15 polling places in North Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana and California .

“I’ve been here for 2 1/2 hours and was sooo hungry!” one Twitter user posted from Culver City. “Thanks for saving the day @PizzaToThePolls.”

Another user tweeted, “Shout out to the #voter waiting in line for Weekend #EarlyVoting at West LA College who decided to feed the other voters in line with her using @PizzaToThePolls. Pretty festive #voting atmosphere here.”

Remember folks, it is your duty as an American to vote in this, and all, elections…no matter what.  It is the most basic and necessary right in this country, and we cannot let it go to waste.

And, if there’s even the slightest chance of free pizza, you know I’m going to be there.

Save conservative media!

Pelosi’s Letter to Dems Makes Clear It Is ‘Dangerous’ to Let Election Decide Who Will Be POTUS

Even for Nancy Pelosi, this is pretty bad. How dare she say something like this? Where does she find the stones? Oh, that’s right. She can say whatever she wants because the mainstream media will spin in her favor. Got it. All this does is reinforce the notion that President Trump never has, nor ever will, receive any semblance of credibility from the Democrat Party. These people are ruthless in their desire to destroy Trump’s life. At the end of the day, Trump was the right man for the job. He has a big mouth and he likes to use it. He won’t apologize for being brash. He doesn’t care if liberals see things his way or not. He’s determined. He’s focused on making America a better place than she was under Barack Obama. And he’s winning. Check out Nancy’s letter to her immoral peers… Pelosi issues rebuttal to GOP talking point in Dear Colleague letter: “The weak response to these hearings has been, ‘Let the election decide.’ That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because POTUS is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections.” https://twitter.com/JaxAlemany/status/1196506422651039745?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196506422651039745&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F WATCH: Nancy Pelosi compares Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to the American Revolution War https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1184922572246274048?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184922572246274048&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F10%2F17%2Fcome-on-nancy-pelosi-compares-dems-impeachment-threats-to-the-american-revolution%2F Reactions: The revolutionary war was fought bc of ppl like her.
