Are You Registered to Vote?! Find Out How to #TurnUpTheVote Here!
September 27, 2016 is National Voter Registration day. Today, several non-partisan groups like MTV, the League of Women Voters, Bus Federation, Rock the Vote and many more to spread awareness and help people to register and vote on Election Day.
The EDM community is doing their part, too! Electronic Music Alliance (EMA) and Give a Beat has launched a Turn Up the Vote campaign to join the more than 2,000 organizations across the nation implementing grassroots voter registration programs. The goal is to ensure every eligible voter has an opportunity to register and vote in the Presidential Election on November 8th.
Making sure you are registered and up-to-date is easy! There are several websites that can help you to register or update your registration (if you've moved, for instance) in less time than it would take to listen to deadmau5's new "Strobe" remix.
Here are a couple of links where you can register to vote quickly and securely...
"It's super easy to be apathetic. What is harder is to do our research and show up in society as a warrior, standing up for our values. There is so much more at stake than who gets to be the next President. Often it is the local politics that affect us the most, especially when it comes to the politics of dancing. We need our electronic music fans to vote in people that are nightlife and drug reform friendly if we want our scene to survive." -- Janine Jordan, Executive Director EMA
