EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Evansville Fourth Ward City Councilman Alex Burton hosted an “I Voted Party” on Election Day from noon to 5 p.m. in place of a traditional viewing party held on Election Night due to COVID-19.
That event was held at the Old Cut Rate Market at the corner of Morton and Lincoln Avenue.
According to a press release, there will be entertainment provided by DJ Drey and free food provided by Divas' Cookin and Moochie’s Cupcakes.
The event is a grab and go style and will be outside to promote social distancing. Masks will also be required.
Burton held the event as a “thank you” for standing in long voting lines both today and during early voting.
“It’s election time, there’s a lot of issues on the ballot with regards to stances, platforms, that sort of thing," said Burton. "But at the same time, what the future of the country looks like. What better way to do that, then celebrate this moment. This is just an opportunity for people to come out and maybe even meet some candidates. I was so very grateful to not only put this event together but have so many candidates really just rally behind me and see this succeed.”
Many candidates were in attendance at the event.
