Get on the Bus to Ohio!

Downtown for Democracy will be running two 57-passenger busses from Brooklyn, NY to Columbus, OH election weekend.

Swing the State and Downtown for Democracy have committed to filling these two busses with volunteers to work with VoteMob, a division of 21st Century Democrats. VoteMob has registered 9,000 new voters and contacted 90,000 registered voters in Ohio since June. Election weekend they will be door knocking, phone calling and doing everything they can to get out the youth vote in Ohio.

These trips cost $20. That covers your transportation, housing (probably someone's couch or floor) and some food. The first bus leaves Thursday night, October 28 and returns Sunday, October 31. The second bus leaves Friday night, October 29 and returns Wednesday, November 3 (let's hear it for absentee ballots!).

To RSVP for either trip send an email to getonthebus@downtownfordemocracy.org or call 718-290-9153. Please specify which trip you're going on.
