Women’s magazine Cosmopolitan is sending a “party bus” with models to North Carolina State University next week to take students to and from the polls on Election Day.
The bus is part of a contest won by the university, and the latest in Cosmo’s foray into political coverage. This year, the magazine endorsed candidates in 10 races — all Democrats — based on their views on abortion, contraception, and equal pay.
“On Election Day, a bus decked out with snacks, swag, and models (hi, this is Cosmo) will roll up to North Carolina State University, the winner of Cosmopolitan.com’s first-ever party bus contest,” the magazine said. “The bus will shuttle students back and forth to a nearby polling location so students can vote.”
The university was entered into the contest by sophomore Camden Willeford, Cosmo said.
“This election is not a light matter here in NC,” he said. “The weight is on the students of North Carolina State University.”
