Get ready to do your constitutional duty, and be rewarded with a sweet treat.
Indivisible AVL has partnered with Sweet Ride Asheville, a new contact-free mobile snack truck run by high school students, for Ice Cream and Voting. The first event in Sunday, July 26 from 1 to 4:30pm.
The truck will make five stops in Montford, Kenilworth and West Asheville, where kids can enjoy free ice cream and adults can get free voting information, including registration forms, absentee ballot applications, and voting schedules. Indivisible will also be recruiting volunteers to get involved with its nonpartisan Let’s All Vote 2020 campaign.
Indivisible AVL Board Member Katie Russell, “We’ve had to get creative to reach voters and we are so excited to get out into local communities to be sure our neighbors are ready to vote during these uncertain times,” says Indivisible AVL board member Katie Russell. “We want to help people double check that they have up-to-date voter registration, and give them information about requesting a mail-in ballot in case they need it. Many people don’t realize that if you request an absentee ballot, you don’t have to use it; you can still decide to vote in person but you have the mail-in option if you need it.”
