Are you registered to vote? No? Not sure? Well, Lil Dicky, Big Gigantic, Dispatch, The National, Phil Lesh, and a host of others are helping make sure you are. We are teaming up with your favorite artists and HeadCount.org to make sure everyone can have their voices heard this Election Day, from registering to vote to finding your polling place.
Why HeadCount? Since its founding, HeadCount.org has worked with hundreds of artists to help get the word out about the importance of voting. The first part of this campaign will focus on voter registration. Then, beginning in mid-October when voter registration deadlines have passed, the campaign will switch to helping ensure people make it to the polls.
These non-partisan messages will be delivered through a combination of artist audio messages and a broader awareness campaign encouraging voter participation. Through these personal audio messages, Pandora is providing artists with another avenue to connect directly with their fans where we know they are – on their stations, listening to their music. More artists will be added as we get closer to November.
What does this mean for you? You already listen to Pandora wherever and whenever you want, and we will be using HeadCount.org’s new HelloVote mobile voter registration platform, meaning you can now register in the same way – in less than a minute. Click the link when you hear a message and choose how you want to register – on the web, or even via text message and Facebook Messenger.
Hear a message, click the link, and get registered – it couldn’t be easier. With HeadCount.org, we are making it easy to make sure your voice is heard.
