“Darkness falls across the land

The midterm vote is close at hand

Creatures crawl in search of voters

To terrorize y’alls neighborhood”

Ok, so that’s not exactly how the creepy deep-sounding voice-over in Michael Jackson’s famous Thriller goes, but nonetheless, my substitute lyrics still ring true.  We only have a few weeks left until election day, and that means it’s time to get Nebraska voters excited!

This Halloween, as the 2010 election cycle comes to a close, Bold Nebraska and Trick or Vote — a national effort to get out the vote just two days before the midterm elections — will channel our inner MJs as we knock on doors in Hastings, Omaha, and Lincoln dressed like zombies, ghouls, and everything in between.

If you, too, are interested in getting out the vote for November 2 (or joining me in busting out some sweet Thriller dance moves), sign up here to join us.  Plus, there’s a FREE after party — if you Trick or Vote — at the Red9 in Lincoln and the Blue Moon in Hastings (an Omaha party is pending).   

I leave you today with a few (paraphrased) wise words from the King of Pop himself: “Now is time for you and I to get out the vote together… All through the night, we’ll be knocking doors for votes on Halloween, it’ll be a scream!”
