Trick or Vote Canvass
Trick or Vote is a program of the Bus Project. It is a coalition working to make targeted voter contacts in urban areas on Halloween. Just 4 days before the election, 1000 costumed volunteers will canvass low-turnout, youth-dense precincts to remind people to vote, distribute nonpartisan voter guides, and generate both grassroots and media awareness of the upcoming Election Day.

Ghouls & Goblins Gala
After the massive voter contact effort, the volunteers will gather for a wicked party with local acts Blind Pilot & DJ Beyonda, an extensive bar & food carts.
The gala is a thank you party – a recognition of volunteers’ dedicated efforts throughout the election season. General admission tickets will be available to the public.

Trick or Vote is....
• The best way on the best day:
Halloween is the one day each year we culturally expect a knock on the door and it also always falls just days before the election. You may be too old to trick-or-treat, but you're never too old to trick-or-vote. Studies show that face-to-face contact is the most effective method to boost voter turnout—increasing participation by as much as 8–12%.
• Engaging new voices:
In 2004, of the 800 volunteers at Trick or Vote, 227 of them indicated with a checkbox that Trick or Vote was their first political volunteer experience.
• Making a Real Difference:
In the 2006 midterm election, over 500 volunteers participated in Trick or Vote, knocked on over 20,000 doors, and distributed 25,000 voter guides. Young voters (18-30) in targeted areas turned out at a 5% higher rate than voters in similar, non-targeted areas.

Now a nationwide affair, the original Portland site will host its 3rd Trick or Vote since 2004. Fifteen other cities across the country, with the support of the Bus and national partners, will begin the Trick or Vote tradition this year.
