Community to host virtual ‘Haunted Ballot Party’ this weekend

Those who have no clue how to vote this election will have the opportunity to learn how to fill out a ballot, where to vote and when to vote at an event this Saturday—and in the age of ‘Rona, it will be virtual.

Organized by nonprofit Khmer Girls in Action and Long Beach Rising, the event, Haunted Ballot Party, will run from 5 to 6:30 p.m. encouraging attendees to also wear Halloween costumes, play trivia games about voter education led by youth organizers and learn about the propositions organizers support, including Proposition 15 and Measure US.

KGA program coordinator Maggie Quan said the top three winners of the trivia games will receive prizes, and more prizes, in form of PPE care packages, will be raffled off to those who sign up to their newsletter or to volunteer.

Attendees must RSVP first in order to receive the Zoom link to the event. Click here to register.
