Imagine if in every community, in every precinct, in every town and city in our country, millions of people flooded the streets just as they did for the Women’s Marches and March For Our Lives, MARCHING DIRECTLY TO THE POLLS in a creative and community-oriented get out the vote effort.
On Election Day, here in New York, we will be taking to the streets to vote. Join us to #MarchOnThePolls
WHAT TO DO:
Find a march on the map coming soon to www.marchonthepolls.org, or start your own, grab your neighbors, and march straight to your local polling place.
This will serve as an example to the nation of what it looks like to make Election Day a true holiday. Artists, musicians, circus performers, Broadway stars, producers and others will be programming polling stations across the five boroughs, making voting into a communal, celebratory activity; whether it's a dance-a-thon, a lemonade stand, or Steve Buscemi serving PB&Js outside the polls.
HOW TO LEAD:
We're asking that producers, artists, actors, and culture creators all over the five boroughs participate by adopting a polling station. The goal is to make that polling station fun, interactive, and communal—a place where people want to be on Election Day. Our philosophy is that not only is voting critically important and a right everyone should exercise, it's also something that should be done in the spirit of community.
Programming out a polling location can mean almost any activity, from serving coffee and donuts to creating a mini-parade that takes people to the polling station to go vote.
Have a marching band? Stilt walkers? It's all up to you.
Find a polling place you want to adopt and let us know what you’re planning on doing by filling out the partner form coming soon at www.marchonthepolls.org

There's NO SLEEP TIL MIDTERMS.
See you at the polls, people!
