Angry Sushi Chefs Start Actual Knife Fight

‘Guac the Vote’ Will Register Voters at Taco Trucks on Every Corner

The campaign from the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce aims to turn taco trucks into mobile voter registration vehicles that both satisfy your appetite and fulfill your American patriotic duty in one fell swoop. Guac the Vote’s ambition is to get a taco truck at every polling location in America this year.
