Let’s keep democracy alive by sending pizza to voters stuck in line

It’s not always easy doing your patriotic duty. In some areas of the United States, voters may find themselves waiting in seemingly endless, slow-moving lines for hours, just for the privilege of casting a ballot on Election Day. Some citizens, discouraged and weak from hunger, may even consider dropping out and going home. Fortunately, a website called Pizza To The Polls can supply these weary, would-be voters with the “piping hot ’za” they need in order to go the distance.

Calling pizza “the one thing that pairs so perfectly with freedom,” this civic-minded, nonpartisan site asks users to report long lines at polling places so that fresh-baked pies can be delivered there ASAP. Visitors to the site may also choose to donate to the 🍕 Fund. Every $10 buys another delicious pie that could potentially keep the American democratic experiment alive just a little longer. Though not a charity, the site promises that “every dollar collected will go towards feeding hungry Americans.”


Pizza To The Polls’ progress can be monitored through its Twitter account.

Users can also forward relevant links directly to Pizza To The Polls. The following tweet, for instance, resulted in the delivery of 16 pizzas to the Hamilton County Board of Elections in Cincinnati, Ohio.


So there it is—cheese, dough, and tomato sauce, joining forces to keep democracy working. It’s enough to make you tear up with patriotic pride during a rendition of “I Am A Pizza.”
