As we mentioned on our front page, we’ve provided space for Empower Alabama to explain just what Trick or Vote is all about – and how to get involved with it! – ACN

Trick or Vote is a nationwide nonpartisan get-out-the-vote effort taking place on Halloween in more than 20 cities. Across the nation, young folks (and the young at heart) will get all dressed up and knock for democracy instead of candy. After our civic duty’s been done, we’ll party down at the Ghouls and Goblins Gala and celebrate our civic spookiness.

Why Trick or Vote you may ask? Studies show that the most effective way to get young people to vote before an election is to knock on their doors and encourage them to vote. And what’s the one day when we’re all culturally ready for a knock on the door? Halloween! Just 5 days before the general Election.

So while you might be too old to trick or treat, you’re never too old to Trick or Vote!

To sign up, visit

Trick or Vote Birmingham will be held at the McWane Science Center, 200 19th St. N. Birmingham, AL 35203.

The first canvass leaves at 4, the second at 5:30 for the after-work crowd. Bring your spook.

Party from 8-midnight with entertainment provided by Kids Got the Disco. Food provided and spirits, not the scary kind, will be available.

Trick or Vote Birmingham is organized by Empower Alabama, Catalyst for Birmingham, and Greater Birmingham Ministries.
