Kids Voting at Blue Monday

We've gotten such a great reaction, we have decided there is a need so we had better jump in and do it! Here are the details:

Saturday, November 1 Noon to Three p.m. Free
Blue Monday Craft Lounge 652 Main Street (765.420.9850)

Anyone under the age of 18 may "vote."
When they arrive, they will create their own "identification card." Then they will check in with a volunteer. They will show their card, verify their age, first name, and state of residence. At that point they will be handed a "ballot," which they can take into the booth, fill out, and drop into the ballot box.

Most rules that apply to voting sites will apply at this event; free, non-partisan, one vote each person, etc. The only significant differences will be the lack of age restriction and presence of snacks. The ballot contains the names of the candidates (along with photos for the pre-readers) that are present on the Indiana ballot: Barr, McCain, and Obama. Write-in candidates will also be permitted.

Results will be announced that Saturday night. No need to register, come on down!!!

(I feel like I need a disclaimer that NONE of these votes will come close to even being considered valid for the election. Entertainment purposes only, folks. No fraud here!)

We have been making new normal so here are some photos!


This skirt was purchased by Amy and faithful Blue Monday shopper! Amy lives in Wisconsin, we miss her when she is there!

This skirt was bought by a faithful Blue Monday customer, I don't know her name, but she sure is great! Thanks for the tickets this weekend! Look forward to seeing you in the store!

October has been a busy month at Blue Monday! We started out with "Outoberfest" an awesome event put on by the local Lafayette Pride office. What an amazing turn out, and a great evening of fun! Next we had the highly anticipated first show of our friends new band, "The Left!" What an amazing time! We are really anticipating the next show! Saturday we had Octoberfest another great event put on by UMA! 6000 people downtown on a Saturday......Yeah! That rocks! We have a quiet weekend this week, (except for of course the Snorb! show at Hunter's South) But, next weekend is Halloween, The Left's 2nd show with the Macpodz, and of course the mock voting at Blue Monday (more info to follow!) Try to catch us if you can!
