Vote-mob meaning

(Canada) A gathering of usually young people assembled for the purpose of voting in an election or encouraging youth participation in it and often organized through online social media.

The organizers claim these fun, upbeat gatherings are non-partisan in nature and have nothing to do with political protest. In particular, the event has also been called a "surprise party," as evidenced by a You-Tube video in which a vote mob comes out of the woods and rolls out a banner that reads, "Surprise! We are voting!" ― Michael Taube.


Origin of vote-mob
