type:Volunteering
by:Yair Oded

HeadCount is a U.S.-based nonprofit organization which encourages participation in democracy through music.

Although across certain demographics numbers are increasing, voting registration remains low throughout the United States. 

In order to tackle this problem and encourage America’s eligible voters to take an active part in shaping their democracy, HeadCount attend music concerts and festivals across the country and stage information booths where people can learn about the importance of voting and register to vote.

Their ultimate goal is to “translate the power of music into real action.”

HeadCount operate through a network of volunteers, which currently stands at 20,000, HeadCount members. Thus far, they have successfully registered roughly 500,000 voters.

Their organization is endorsed and supported by numerous music and festival producers and promoters, as well as prominent musicians.
