Lansing sweetens the deal for voters

Clerk combines voting with trick or treating


MONDAY, Oct. 26 — Lansing City Clerk Chris Swope is offering a twofer this Halloween weekend for voters and their families.

Swope is billing it as “Souls to the Polls,” featuring a drive-thru “trunk or treat” at the back parking lot of the South Washington Office Complex, 2500 S. Washington Ave. (behind the old Washington Armory).

“Lansing City voters are invited to drive-through to receive candy and fun items from participating partner tents along the path,” Swope’s office announced. “There will also be food trucks and plenty of fun.”

Hours are noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
