Free Pupusas! Waka Flocka Flame! How College Students Are Getting Out The Vote
To boost voter engagement, students at California universities are reaching out to their peers in a language they understand.
They're using a variety of enticements:
- Concerts with singers Waka Flocka Flame and Cupcakke that include voter registration
- Photo booth where you can don a fetching Uncle Sam or Abe Lincoln hat
- Tote bags with customized airbrushed voting messages
- Hands-on demo of the new L.A. County touch screen voting machine
- Free pupusas!
