Lehman College to host early voting themed haunted house Thursday


Halloween carries an additional spooky twist for New Yorkers this year as the midterm elections loom, but one local nonprofit is trying to make the democratic process less daunting.

Katie Hetlage is the communications director for Next Generation Politics, an organization that aims to engage young people — especially those from historically marginalized communities — about politics and civic discourse. She’s working with an initiative of Next Generation Politics, called Y Vote, to educate Bronxites about early voting by organizing a haunted house at Lehman College Thursday.
