Get ready to parrrrtyyy to the Polls. We're hosting Skimm the Vote Dallas in partnership with theSkimm’s #NoExcuses get-out-the-vote campaign for the Midterm Election. Come out and join us for some drinks and let's Skimm the Midterms!
A Skimm’bassador and No Excuses Captain will Skimm why it’s important to turn out this year and what’s at stake. Plus, nonpartisan voter resources like voter registration forms and other education materials will be available.
The No Excuses campaign is a nonpartisan campaign that aims to get 100,000 Americans to turn out on election day. TheSkimm, a company who aims to make it easier to be smarter, began the campaign after uncovering startling research around voter turnout, especially during the midterms. In 2016, theSkimm set a goal of registering 100,000 people to vote. They crushed that goal, and this year they want to do more. Our goal is to get 100,000 to actually commit to voting in the midterms. LET’S SHOW THEM WHAT WE CAN DO IN DALLAS, TX. There is no excuse not to vote this year!
Soo what should I expect?
