DC Vote and Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will meet attendees of the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear this Saturday as
they make their way down Pennsylvania Ave to the event, to raise awareness of DC's disenfranchisement to the many visitors who may be
ignorant of the issue.
With the Capitol in the background, Norton and DC Vote will distribute rally signs reading
BE SANE. Let DC Vote.
In keeping with Stephen Colbert's call for people to attend in costume,
the Hippos Against Hypocrisy will also be out to join the fun and help spread the word.
After the rally, DC Vote will be at The Passenger for an official Colbert after-party focused on DC voting rights. Specialty cocktails will
include the Fear Monger, Colbert Patriot Punch, and Norton's Revenge.
