Darren commented on Celebrating Elections --> UPDATED

This is fantastic! I'd love to see this as an annual celebration of neighborhood, taking place even when there is no election being held. In the US we have a holiday right around election time, Veteran's Day. How great would it be if every year, people took a day off to celebrate their communities, and then every other year took ownership by voting?!

Most community events in the US are usually driving affairs, I live in California, the state fair is about 2 hours away, by car. Even the county fair is about 45 mins away by car. The most accessible public space for most people is a school, which is usually walkable, unless people live in a very rural area.

I've been thinking of an idea like this as well. Have you thought of specific mechanisms to accomplish this? I was thinking of a Wiki and/or a chatroom.
