The event is a get out the vote effort on the “one night when everyone expects a knock on their door.” Event organizer Mollie Ruskin says the biking volunteers will meet up at the Wonder Ballroom on Halloween night (Sunday) for a quick training session. After being armed with voter packets, addresses and maps, they’ll roll out in teams of two. “We have selected specific areas for bikers to knock on doors, that are along easily accessible bike boulevards.”
From the Wonder Ballroom (128 NE Russell), the bike canvassers will head north along N. Williams to the Piedmont neighborhood and east on the N Going Neighborhood Greenway. After knocking on doors and encouraging people to vote, volunteers will get free tickets to the big Monster’s Ball Halloween bash back at Wonder Ballroom (tickets for non-volunteers are $15).
