Cosmopolitan magazine will be sexing-up the midterm elections by sending a “party bus” full of male models to get out the vote at North Carolina State University.

“On Election Day, a bus decked out with snacks, swag, and models (hi, this is Cosmo) will roll up to North Carolina State University,” the magazine’s website announced last week.

As the winner of the magazine’s “first-ever party bus contest,” NC State will also enjoy the luxury of shuttles to nearby polling stations.

The party bus contest was the latest stunt in the “#CosmoVotes campaign,” part of the magazine’s recent push to bring together sex and politics.

Sophomore Camden Willeford, the Associate Director of Publicity/Communications for the student government, decided to enter NC State in the Cosmo contest.

Willeford reportedly signed up his school for purely civic motives: “I do it for the people,” he said, as quoted by the student newspaper The Technician.
