Philly Voters Dance the ‘Cha Cha Slide’ While Waiting to Cast Ballots
Philadelphia voters turned the waiting in long lines to vote into a fun experience … by mixing up a bit of “Cha Cha Slide”.
The good times unfolded in Philadelphia, as a large group of voters waiting to vote in the city on Saturday passed the time with a dance group … moving in unison under the influence of DJ Casper usually reserved for wedding receptions.
Viral video is more than just a random wellness moment – it’s part of the work that is done by Nelini stamp of the Working Families Party, who is also a campaign manager for Election Defenders.
The goal of Nelini and the non-partisan coalition is to make sure voters “stay safe and healthy outside polling stations across the country and bring them joy.”
More importantly, it aims to combat voter suppression and intimidation by bringing in “Joy to the Polls”… which kicked off this weekend in Pennsylvania for the first day of voting.
The result is what you see here, and Stamp says it feels good to see people responding positively to the movement … even though she thinks long lines are a burden people shouldn’t have to. support.
Our sincere thanks to
