NEW! Boost Mobile Addresses Voter Inequality, Offers Stores As Polling Stations

Boost Mobile has joined the political fray by doing something to help balance voter inequality in low-income neighborhoods: it’s offering the use of all its stores as polling stations on November 8. Many people must wait hours on end to cast their ballot, due to lack of volunteers or locations. Boost Mobile has already implementing this program in Southern California: Orange, Riverside and San Diego, along with and Cook County in Chicago. The company extended the offer to 817 county election boards nationwide and election officials in need of new polling places can contact Boost Mobile directly at elections@boostyourvoice.com. Boost Mobile employees will also be volunteering on election day at a number of polling places.Supporting the initiative is a video called “Boost Your Voice – Equal Access For All,” a website and change.org petition, enlisting the public’s help for equal voting access and to put pressure on election officials to adopt innovative. The video shows polling outrage as town residents wait in lines that are blocks long and might take hours to vote. Let’s hope election officials take Boost Mobile up on their offer. 180LA created the campaign.
