“Dear PoPville,

I filled out the DC voter registration form, signed and scanned it, and emailed it to the contact that it said in the email, but never got any response… Does anyone know if you just assume your registered, or should I get a confirmed response at some point?

From an email:

“The Carlos Rosario School is hosting a Voter Registration and Education Fair from 5:00-7:30pm. We’ll have local artists and musicians, free food from Los Hermanos, activities for the whole family, voter resources and even a practice voting booth. Community partners like Mary’s Center, GALA Theater, OLA and DC Board of Elections will be here, too. Join us at 1100 Harvard Street NW in Columbia Heights and celebration National Voter Registration Day.”



“Today is National Voter Registration Day and we invite you to join us for the first ever “Hillary Con” this Friday, September 30th from 7-10pm at Town Tavern to kick-off voter registration weekend!

The idea started because we wanted amidst all the election crazy an event that celebrates Hillary as the best candidate for President, but also everything she has done for women (i.e. pantsuits) and we wanted to hold it an a woman owned bar. We found a great partner in Gracie, owner of Town Tavern who offered us the opportunity to turn our event into a low low low dollar fundraiser.

Get your ticket now for entry & specials:
$5 Online/Eventbrite, $10 At The Door!
Drink Specials Galore. Raffles. Best Dressed Hillary Contest & More..

All of that money will be donated to Vote.org, a fantastic non-profit that has already registered hundreds of thousands of new voters via its online voter registration tools.


The Vision:
Hillaries drinking.
Hillaries in dress suits.
Hillaries in pants suits.
HIllaries and power suits of every color and gender identity.
Hillaries with sunglasses.
Hillaries in headbands.
Nice Hillaries. Mean Hillaries.
Hilliaries being however they wanna be.

Dress as Hillary and/or come hang out with others dressed like Hillary to kick off Voter Registration weekend!! Of course we’ll be also making sure folks are registered to vote.”
