In sweltering ninety-degree heat, HeadCount kicked off the “Midterms Matter Tour,” this past weekend by registering over 300 voters at the Summer Camp festival in Chillicothe, IL.
Katie and I were two of those 300. They had a volunteer walking around to the stage areas with clipboards setup so that people could register while watching the bands. That was pretty nice actually — watching Umphrey’s McGee from the back of the Main Stage area by the shade and registering to vote in the upcoming midterm elections; I was relaxed and productive at the same time. :)
They’re on the road this summer to support the cause, and I’m fully onboard to help spread that message. Go see the booth at your favorite concert or music festival this summer, and register to vote now if you haven’t already.
