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.
