All Hallows’ Eve is upon us, and Meetups all over are getting into the spooky spirit. No matter what you’re into, chances are there’s a Halloween-happy Meetup near you celebrating this weekend. Throw on your costume, and get in on the fun. We rounded up some holiday highlights for inspiration.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve joined forces with The Pew Charitable Trusts’ Voting Information Project and The Internet Association to help voters Get to the Polls on November 4th for the U.S. Midterm Elections. The Get to the Polls site provides voters with a simple, central location to find everything they need to make an informed decision on Election Day. By entering their residential information, voters will be able to find their polling place address, hours of operation, and full ballot summary with just a few easy clicks.
At Meetup, we’re setting out to make local community real. We believe that everyone should have a voice in their community, and voting is one of the most important ways to make that voice heard. Through Meetup, people come together to make their communities stronger, healthier, happier places, and choosing our elected officials is an important part of ensuring those communities continue to thrive. Creating the communities we want to live in is important work, and it’s up to all of us to do it together. Voting is a critical piece of that work, and we’re thrilled to see Get to the Polls making it easier than ever. If you’re a United States citizen, make sure to check it out, and on November 4th, don’t forget to vote.
When Tina was first introduced to a book club Meetup by a friend, she said “I’m not going anywhere with strangers.” She then proceeded to have “one of the best experiences of my life,” adding “I am still friends with those strangers.” Today Tina is the proud organizer of the Double Dutch Lovers NYC Meetup, a community of women who come together to exercise and re-live childhood memories. One Saturday afternoon this summer, we grabbed our jump ropes and headed to Central Park to get in on the fun.
