Phish, Furthur, Dave Matthews Band and Wilco to Host Voter Registration Drives on Their Summer Tours
A number of young volunteers will embark on “The Great American Road Trip” this summer with a goal to register voters at Dave Matthews Band, Wilco, Phish and Furthur concerts across the country. Organized by the nonpartisan voter registration organization HeadCount, the trip will cover 103 concerts in an effort to increase turnout among young voters in the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
Anyone 18 years of age or older can sign up to volunteer at HeadCount’s website. HeadCount has also just launched a specialized Facebook app that allows users to complete their voter registration application online.
