International advocacy organization Global Citizen and voter registration organization HeadCount launched the Just Vote campaign earlier in September with the goal of getting young Americans to check their status, register, and hit the polls in November and elections to come.
Just Vote aims to engage young Americans by offering exclusive experiences and performances donated by entertainers, celebrities and influencers that can only be achieved through checking their voter registration status. In fact, they are hoping to engage 1 million young voters and get 50,000 people registered for the first time or re-registered before November 3rd.
Taylor Swift, Usher, Billie Eilish, FINNEAS, Lenny Kravitz, Quavo, and Shawn Mendes are just some of the artists on board. Opportunities include a 1:1 video chat with Kravitz, happy hour with Quavo, and dance lessons from Meghan Trainor and Usher. Others who have also joined the campaign are Billy Porter, Bob Weir, Dave Matthews, DJ Khalid, Donna Karan, Dove Cameron, Eddie Vedder, FINNEAS, Gavin Rossdale, Julianne Hough, Kaia Gerber, Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor, Loren Gray, Madison Beer, Nicky Jam, and Prince Royce.
Just Vote is also teaming up with other organizations to expand their reach. Some of the partners include Cisco, Procter & Gamble, The Coca-Cola Company, Delta Air Lines, and Lyft, which are supporting and encouraging their employees’ participation in civic duties by providing their own incentives.
With less than 30 days until the election, it's important we all use our voice. HeadCount and Global Citizen believe this campaign will encourage young people who may be voting for the first time to be a part of the solution for the critical issues the country is facing.
