Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, DJ Khaled & More Team Up With Global Citizen & HeadCount To Encourage Fans To Vote
Global Citizen, a movement seeking to end extreme poverty by 2030, and HeadCount, a voter registration non-profit, are teaming up to get Americans registered to vote for the upcoming presidential election on Nov. 3. To do so, they are tapping in some major names in hopes they can help thousands of voters register.
Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Nicky Jam, DJ Khaled are some of the big names joining the non-partisan Just Vote campaign targeting young voters, according to Rolling Stone. The campaign is offering eligible voters who check their status or who register experiences, memorabilia and performances donated by participating artists.
City Girls, Julianne Hough, FINNEAS, Quavo and Usher are among other artists supporting the voter registration drive. Rolling Stone reports that people who check their registration status may be up for “a virtual dance lesson with Usher and his choreographer, a never-before-seen performance from Nicky Jam, a happy hour meet and greet with Quavo, or a virtual get together with DJ Khaled." A Taylor Swift signed guitar, and merch from FINNEAS as well as Eilish, who began partnering with HeadCount in June 2019, are also up to giveaway.
Global Citizen and HeadCount hope to register 50,000 voters before the November election, a statement said.
