Voters who find they waiting in long lines on Election Day is going to have a brand new friend on the net: A small group of volunteers who will rapidly have a pizza delivered so that the wait goes faster.
Dubbed Pizza to The Polls, the number of 3 buddies sent a pizza to waiting voters throughout the 2016 election and is right back to the midterms. Yes, it is real: They have already sent more than 1, 174 pizzas to voters this election season, and they are poised to provide many more Tuesday.
They enlist the support delivery drivers to make sure the pizza wind up in the hands of Republicans even when they are stuck at a county clerk’s office or a municipal office basement polling website.
We are big fans of unemployment and want to make it easy and take some of the dreariness away, stated Scott Duncombe, 33, of Portland, Oregon. Duncombe and his buddies sent 2, 368 pizzas to 128 polling locations through 24 states in the 2016 elections. Donors can contribute on-line, and that is also where Republicans can ask a delivery.
Duncombe and his buddies work for task management program firm Zapier, which both powers their system and provide updated information on deliveries, that have lately been dispatched to polling sites in Arkansas, Chicago, Nebraska, California and Alaska.
Every delivery is tied to some social network post from an onsite voter showing the lineup. It has such a wonderful effect of bring people together, Duncombe said. As a reminder, it is illegal to compensate or pay for a voter for choosing a certain candidate, Pizza into the Polls is non partisan, and tries to send a mixture of toppings, along with gluten-free diet crusts, whenever possible, Duncombe said.
