Mission

HeadCount is a non-partisan organization that uses the power of music to register voters and promote participation in democracy. We reach young people and music fans where they already are – at concerts and online – to inform and empower.

Our message is not about what party you support or where you land on an issue. It's that you must speak to be heard.

Voter Registration and Engagement

HeadCount stages voter registration drives at over 1,000, festivals and music events each election year, and has registered close to 500,000 voters in its history. Its partners include Dave Matthews Band, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Pearl Jam and the Dixie Chicks. It also has a large online presence for voter registration and information at HeadCount.org.

Population(s) Served

HeadCount organizes “Participation Row” social action villages on concert tours and at music festivals, hosting various non-profit organizations in an interactive setting. At each Participation Row there is some sort of incentive that drives attendees to visit the various organizations and take meaningful actions. There are also memorabilia auctions that have raised over $1 Million for a variety of environmental, healthcare and educational causes.

Population(s) Served

National Voter Registration Day is a single day of coordinated field, technology and media efforts intended to create a pervasive awareness of voter registration opportunities and deadlines. HeadCount was a founding partner of NVRD in 2012. On this day, HeadCount helps artists, comedians and celebrities share photos of them holding a “Register to Vote” clipboard and a voter registration link on social media. HeadCount has registered over 50,000 voters thanks to single day pushes on past NVRDs. Participants in the campaign include Stephen Colbert, Questlove, Panic! At the Disco, Bob Weir and Fergie.
