This weekend, Minneapolis residents had the ability to get their car “wrapped” with Vote No stickers (we’re talking door-sized stickers!). A public event was launched on Facebook with a goal to wrap over 100 cars in Minnesota – a mission that was accomplished according to site creators.
Many people that had their cars wrapped with the Vote No message have posted pictures on the above Facebook page. Kare11 even picked up the story over the weekend:
Move over little bumper stickers.
Outside the Eagle Bolt Bar in downtown Minneapolis, cars were lined up Saturday as Richard Herod III and his friends wrapped them, on all three sides, with decals that said “Vote No” against the marriage amendment.
The Kare11 story also featured some creative tactics amendment supporters are using to get out their message. As we’ve seen numerous times in Minnesota, amendment supporters are once again using kids to get their message out. The vote yes side is holding a pumpkin carving contest where kids are encouraged to create pumpkins that showcase the mean-spirited amendment.
Hmmm, adults volunteering to wrap their own cars or using school-aged children to drive a message of inequality… I’m so proud of the Vote No side. Since the beginning, the focus of the Vote No campaign has been to focus on conversations and positive interactions (the same is true with this blog).
History will remember the Vote No side for the way they’ve conducted themselves.
