If you don’t know what Pokemon Go is I suggest you come from underneath that rock and download it. Lol! The game has taken the world by storm and people are playing the game more than they use Tinder. Trainers are catching Pokemon during work, class, while driving and other inappropriate times and places. Pokemon Go has created a national and cultural moment unlike any other, so it was only a matter of time before it influenced our contentious election season. Presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, is finding ways to incorporate the game with the election so she can possibly catch the majority of votes at the polls.

At a Virginia campaign event on Thursday,

Clinton said “I don’t know who created Pokemon Go but I’m trying to figure out how we get them to Pokemon Go to the polls!”

But in reality, her campaign has already figured it out.

Across the United States, Clinton voters, volunteers and staffers are setting up Pokestops and Gyms to meet trainers and help them get registered to vote. Not only is this a great idea but it’s really important for the swing state like Ohio, Colorado, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Florida.

A Clinton campaign spokesperson explained that Pokemon Go and the election are a natural fit: Hillary’s staffers are diverse and plugged into today’s trends, so their everyday interests inform voter engagement and recruitment. “Organizers in particular tend to skew pretty young … the people out there on the ground are millennials themselves,” she said in a recent interview with Complex.

Pokemon Go is actually a perfect platform to inspire change. The object of the game is literally to move players into action and hopefully Trainers get into action at the polls.

I think this is a pretty good idea to get those who are not yet registered to vote to get out there and get registered and gain realize that their vote does count. What do you think? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.
