Mayor Bill de Blasio launched the #NoshTheVote campaign on Tuesday, asking all unregistered voters to stop by and pick up a form along with their favorite foods.

According to a map posted on Twitter by the NYC Office of Immigrant Affairs, twelve vendors are participating in the campaign, with locations in all five boroughs.

De Blasio even grabbed lunch in Jackson Heights, scooping up a meal from Amdo Kitchen.

Other NYC leaders also got in on the fun. New York City Office of Emergency Management Commissioner Joe Esposito stopped by Sam’s Falafel today at Broadway & Cedar St. in Manhattan, and NYC Immigrant Affairs Commissioner Nisha Agarwal stopped by NY Dosas for a bite downtown.

Most locations are offering voter registration from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. (times very per location, check map.) Follow the Mayor’s office on Twitter for more information.

Election Day will be held on Nov. 8.
