What’s more fun than Alec Baldwin on election-night eve? Not much! Tonight he pops up—boing!—at ArtWalk NY’s auction benefitting Coalition for the Homeless. Co-chairs Richard Gere and wife Carey Lowell wrangle socialites Amanda Hearst, Kristian Lalliberte, Minnie Mortimer and Beth Rudin DeWoody, and hotelier André Balazs. Later, get-the-vote-outers HeadCount throw a bash at the Highline Ballroom, with performances by Joss Stone and ?uestlove of the Roots. Naturally, the event will be Webcast to get the Obamamaniac-yet-lazy YouTubers off the couch. “If somebody’s going to sit and watch a Webcast that’s all about voting, somebody’s going to vote the next day,” said Andy Bernstein, executive director of HeadCount. “?uestlove is a very outspoken supporter of voting and civic engagement. The Roots have worked with every voter registration group out there. … Then there’s Joss Stone, she really wanted to get involved with the U.S. election.”  

[ArtWalk NY cocktail party, Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, 6:30 p.m., 212-776-2056; “Get out the Vote,”  Highline Ballroom, 6 p.m., www.iclips.com for Webcast]
