‘Boat for the Vote’ urges residents to hit the polls early
A floating concert on the Gowanus Canal Friday night is aiming to get people’s heads out of the water and into the polls.
Canoes floated up and down the canal, playing music and singing opera on the water to encourage early voting.
The ‘Boat for the Vote’ event was led by the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club with Wide Awakes Navy.
Early voting starts on Saturday in New York City and runs for 10 days leading up to the general election on Nov. 3.
