Coffee Party Talks - To Vote or Not to Vote


The Coffee Party USA is a hosting partner with the National Week of Conversation event, which runs April 20-28, 2018.

We will be using the guides created by Living Room Conversations to get the ball rolling on our quest to encourage the use of civility and reason all across America. This particular conversation is "To Vote or Not to Vote." 

2018 is a midterm election year. 2014 was the lowest midterm election voter turnout since WWII. Turnout of the voting-eligible population was just 36.4 percent, according to the projection from the United States Elections Project. Many people are wondering what kind of turnout this year will bring. What is it about voting that inspires us to participate or turn away, feeling it’s not worth our effort? Or is there some other reason? In this conversation, we talk about what leads us to vote or not to.

Part of what makes Coffee Party Talks special is the commitment of our participants to these conversation agreements:

  • Be curious and open to learning. 
  • Show respect and suspend judgment. 
  • Find common ground and note differences. 
  • Be authentic and welcome that from others. 
  • Be purposeful and to the point. 
  • Own and guide the conversation.

Sign up and join the conversation! Saturday,  April 28th, 3 - 4:30 p.m. Central time

    If the outcome of the game is rigged, why vote?
