In advance of Election Day, a little encouragement to head to the polls:
A bright red jumpsuit for feeling peppy over the course of a long day.
A reminder to post en route to the polls.
A cheerful face mask, plus a few extras.
A quilted jacket for keeping warm.
Cozy socks for tired feet.
A perfect bag for keeping essentials close.
A clipboard for official business.
A button for broadcasting your support (on your lunch break).
Some tea for boosting immunity.
A tumbler for keeping it warm.
In an effort to ground this make-believing in something a bit more down to earth, a few things you can do on November 3:
+ The United States is facing a shortage of poll workers as the coronavirus puts elderly folks who typically staff these positions at increased risk. In many communities, there’s still time to sign up to be a poll worker. These are typically paid, full-day assignments that require training. Head to Power to the Polls for more information about signing up where you live ASAP.
+ If working the polls isn’t a possibility for you, you can sign up to help feed folks instead! Report long lines at polling places to Pizza to the Polls and they’ll deliver hot pizza to the folks waiting to cast their ballots.
