Trick or Vote Portland 2012

Something Wicked Awesome this Way Comes

Listen up boys and ghouls, Trick or Vote is back. Time to dust off your cape, floss your fangs, and comb your matted werewolf mane. There's an election looming around the corner and if we don't act now it's going sneak up on our neighbors and scare their socks right off.

The best way to get more people to vote is to talk to them face-to-face, at their doorstep. Halloween is the one night of the year everyone expects a knock on their door, and lucky for democracy, it always takes place just a few days before the election.

So while you may be too old to trick or treat, you're never too old to Trick or Vote.

On October 31st we're swarming up the parts of the city that have been most left out of the polical process, delivering a message that's as refreshing as a crisp bob for apples: just vote. We're not telling folks how to vote, we just want them to know the deadline's fast approaching and their voice matters.

Sign up below to unleash your inner-Frankenstein and join us for the most freakishly fantastic door-knocking-vote-getting-extravagganza this country has ever seen.
