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.
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”.
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.
