Tuesday night, the Idaho Democratic Party hosted a party partly to celebrate Halloween, but with a week before Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6, it also offered a chance to talk politics.

Billed as a "Boo, Brew and Blue" party, the event included live music by local musicians, food and a costume contest at the Visual Arts Collective in Garden City.

"[The goal] was really three-fold," said Dean Ferguson, spokesman for the Idaho Democratic Party. "One, it was a fundraiser, so any extra funds above cost, which were really low, go to our voter mobilization campaign, which is basically get out the vote. Also, anybody who registered to vote got in at a lower price. And the third one was to have fun."

Ferguson guessed about 100 people came out, including some in costumes. One man dressed in a grim reaper outfit while another woman wore a 1040 personal income tax form.

Two things inevitable in life: death and taxes.
