Texans Can Actually Register to Vote at Taco Trucks

Controversial ‘taco trucks on every corner’ comment inspired the initiative

Houston residents can “Guac the Vote” at taco trucks doubling as voter registration booths.

In response to Marco Gutierrez’s defense of presidential candidate Donald Trump’s immigration policy — warning, “If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks [on] every corner” — Thomas Hull, who works at the design firm Rigsby Hull, joined forces with Mi Familia Vota. Together they will promote Latino political involvement and “[organize] a fleet of Houston taco trucks to serve as voter registration booths,” Houston Public Media reported.

The campaign is slated to run through Tuesday, Oct. 11.

“We’re also handing out information on where to vote, with early votes and on Election Day and the process of voting, ’cause that’s—registering folks to vote—is half the battle. The other half is getting folks to the polls,” Hull said.
