The line was unmanaged. Uncared for. Unsafe (hundreds of people struggled to maintain social distancing). A real barrier to casting votes.
Your neighbors asked: what can we do on a local level? Fixing the whole broken system is a giant challenge. Can we make one little part of it a whole lot better?
Together, can we look after the line?
Vote Hosts remove one significant barrier to voting, by improving the waiting experience.
Hand sanitizer, bottled water, snacks and drinks.
A better sense of how long the wait will be (it’s called ‘line transparency’, and it’s the number one thing that makes waiting more bearable).
Social distancing cues and tools, neighborhood outreach and education.
A freshly sanitized chair, if you need one. A little bit of live music. A chance to stretch, or answer a trivia question, or meet a neighbor.
