Let’s Join Together to PACK THE POLLS in a Non-partisan Car Parade!
Saturday, October 24 at 2:00 PM
Appleton will join with a growing list of other Wisconsin cities on Saturday, October 24; National Vote Early Day, to demonstrate our support for the most basic exercise of democracy: voting. The League of Women Voters of Appleton is coordinating our local event which will be strictly non-partisan in keeping with the League’s core mission: Empowering voters. Defending democracy.
Participants will be asked to decorate their cars with signs that encourage voting and promote issues but NOT candidates or political parties. We want to promote unity in our community by bringing together a broad spectrum of local civic organizations. We also want to ensure the safety of all participants by designing this a contactless event. Everyone will be encouraged to stay safely inside a vehicle, but should also have a mask and observe social distancing guidelines.
The car parade will begin in the parking lot at Appleton East High School (2121 E. Emmers Dr., Appleton, WI 54915). Please enter via E. John St. Cars should be ready for the parade when they arrive with signs and balloons, etc. Each participant will receive five copies of a leaflet with voting information and a parade route map. Participants are encouraged to share the extra copies of the leaflet with friends and family members.
