Miami Early-Voting Rally Includes Free Tacos, Ron Magill, and a Love Bus to the Polls

With Election Day only three weeks away, the presidential election has turned into a contentious showdown. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and New York businessman Donald Trump are the two leading candidates in this year’s race for the White House.


In these final stages of campaigning, the race grows more bizarre daily. In the past few days, Trump and Clinton took jabs at each other at both the last presidential debate in Las Vegas and the annual Al Smith dinner in New York.


Though Election Day is officially Tuesday, November 8, early voting begins in Florida Monday, October 24, and runs through November 6. And with most people wanting this election to be over with already, it stands to reason that we get out the vote as early as possible. So why not exercise your voting right with a delicious taco?


Monday from noon to 1:30 p.m., Zoo Miami’s Ron Magill and various health-care workers’ unions will host an early-voting celebration at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Alamo Park (1611 NW 12th Ave., Miami) in the center of campus.


Jackson employees and community members who come ready to vote will be treated to a free taco from El Orgullo Latino Kitchen and Que Pinchos Tacos y Mas food trucks, as well as music. Magill, along with a wide variety of voters, will take to the stage to talk about the major issues that are important to them this election year.


Voters will then board the Love Bus and taken to the early-voting site at the Stephen P. Clark Government Center to vote. They will be given a lift back in the bus.
