HeadCount, a non-partisan organization that promotes civil participation through music, culture and live performance, has partnered with fourteen major Broadway shows to encourage fans across the United States to register to vote.
Participating shows whose campaigns launch today include Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of The Temptations; Chicago; ComeFrom Away; Company; David Byrne’s American Utopia (which previously hosted a HeadCount voter registration booth in the Hudson Theatre lobby at each performance); Dear Evan Hansen; Girl From The North Country; Hadestown; Harry Potter and the Cursed Child; Jagged Little Pill; Mean Girls; Moulin Rouge! The Musical; Plaza Suite; and TINA – The Tina Turner Musical. Additional participating shows will be announced soon.
Through HeadCount’s national organization efforts, fans across the country can register, check, or update their voter registration status online and find localized information about polling dates, sites, and candidates. By doing so, they will be entered to win Broadway show tickets (applicable when performances resume) and more.
