October 30, 2018 - 12:36 am
The Washington Bus is a youth driven organization that encourages young people across Washington State to vote and get politically involved. During this elections season, The Washington Bus is busy with campaigns to “Get Out the Vote!”. In addition to door-knocking, the organization hosts phone banking and text banking parties – with a twist.
Phone banking parties come with themes like Harry Potter, where the film is playing in the background, or with a Destiny’s Child theme, featuring lots of their music and images of Beyoncé. KBCS’s Yuko Kodama interviewed Bridget Doyle Williams, who works for The Washington Bus, about the flavor of the organization’s election season “Get Out the Vote!” phone banking parties.
