Getting college students to vote might be a bit easier (and sexier) this year: Cosmopolitan magazine is offering a party bus with “models and swag” to ferry N.C. State students to the polls.
N.C. State won the bus through a contest on Cosmopolitan.com. Here’s what students had to do to win:
“Convince the Cosmo editors that you’re serious about getting people excited for Election Day, and you could win the #CosmoVotes grand prize: A party bus that will shuttle students to the polls, stocked with snacks, prizes, shirtless male models, and more,” the website says. “Because voting is important, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring.”
N.C. State’s successful entry came from sophomore Camden Willeford, the associate director of publicity/communications for the school’s student government. The announcement doesn’t say when or where the bus will be in Raleigh.
N.C. State voters might need the lift even more this year. the Wake County Board of Elections decided to eliminate an on-campus early voting site at the Talley Student Union.
