Silk Road, AlamedaRock the Vote! at Silk Road
Saturday, Oct 20, 12:00-4:00pm

As Americans, we have the right to vote. Sadly, most people don’t utilize that right. In the 2008 election, only 56.8% of eligible voters actually voted. As Vernon Dahmer said, “If you don’t vote, you don’t count.”

This year Silk Road (1412 Park Sreet) wants to try to help increase those numbers by hosting a Rock the Vote Voter Registration Drive on October 20, from Noon to 4:00pm. Enjoy complimentary coffee and snacks, learn about the propositions, the candidates, and the issues. More importantly, exercise one of your greatest rights as an American.

Silk Road will have Candidate ‘Cheat Sheets’ on all the local candidates running for Alameda City Council provided by Michele Ellson from The Alamedan.

The last day to register for the November Election is October 22.
