Political observers are expecting an extraordinarily large turnout
for Tuesday's elections, and as a result, voters at some polling places may have long waits in line before they can cast their ballots. To help make the time spent in line a little more enjoyable, the St. Louis office of the Barack Obama
campaign is looking for musicians who can volunteer some time on Tuesday to perform at polling places for those waiting to vote.
Ted Rose, who's coordinating the effort for the Obama campaign, explains in an email: We're looking for people who can play between 6 and 8:00 pm, before and just after the polls close. The only rule is to entertain everyone and have a good time. The idea is to make waiting at the polls a party! We'll be assigning polling places on Sunday up until that evening. Interested people should contact me at [email protected]
