BIG SPRING – The Anthony Hunt Library on the campus of Howard College has teamed up with Big Spring High School and Howard County libraries to host “PolitiTaco Tuesday” to help prepare voters for the upcoming election.
The come and go events will be held from 5:30-6:30 PM each Tuesday until Election Day on November 3, 2020. Attendees who are not Howard College students can obtain a meal voucher from the library that is valid for a free taco meal in the cafeteria until 7pm. The events are open for anyone to attend but are catered to first time voters who may need more guidance on the election process.
All attendees are required to sign in, wear a mask, and be screened with a hands-free temperature check as they enter the library. Howard College students can attend the event virtually if they prefer.
Everyone who signs in will automatically be entered to win a drawing for one of three taco night party packages, one of which includes a television.
