Do you remember “Barack The Vote?” Well, this is “Wakanda The Vote,” a new voter registration drive inspired by Marvel’s upcoming Black magic masterpiece, Black Panther.
Folks who will be waiting to see Black Panther can register to vote on lines at movie theaters on the film’s February 16 opening weekend. The Movement for Black Lives organized the nationwide project ahead of the midterm elections this November. Folks can text PANTHER to 91990 to create their own event. They can also text WAKANDA to 91990 to register to vote.
You can dress up in your best Marvel cosplay if you want—but remember, you don’t have to be a superhero to #Wakandathevote!
