What is HeadCount?
HeadCount is a non-partisan organization that uses the power of music, culture and digital media to register voters and promote participation in democracy. Since 2004, they’ve signed up over 1,000,000 voters by holding non-partisan voter registration drives at more than 1,000 live events each year!
HeadCount envisions a future where civic participation is ingrained in our culture and high voter turnout is the norm, regardless of the political climate. Most of all, they believe elections should be fair, accessible and trustworthy for all voters.
What are mid-term elections? Why it is important to vote in the mid-terms?
Mid-term elections occur two years into a president’s four-year term in office. This year, they are taking place on Tuesday, November 8th.
Mid-term elections have a major impact. In mid-term elections, voters choose who will represent them in the House of Representatives and the Senate — and that’s just at the congressional level. Mid-term elections are also your opportunity to vote for state governors, state representatives, important ballot questions and countless officials on the local level.
But despite their importance, mid-term elections consistently see less voter turnout compared to presidential elections. In fact, more than half of young voters choose not to participate in mid-terms. Don’t miss your chance for your voice to be heard!
