Afterparty Politics

The under-30 crowd made one helluva showing in the 2004 primaries, contributing to a leap from a measly 9 percent of the electorate in 2000 to 17 percent this year, according to The Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning & Engagement. We're hoping the ballot-boothin’ kids keep kicking it for today’s Arizona Primary Elections.

What better incentive for voter turnout than a little afterparty? We're not talking about a vulgar congregation of sloshy drunks. Tonight, it's time to take the high road for a sophisticated celebration of coffee and intellectual conversation during the Out the Vote Election Night Party. After you’re good and buzzed on caffeine, feel free to hit up a bar like the stereotypical American lush that you are.
