The past few weeks have been busy here at HeadCount â€“ our volunteers have been hard at work in their communities registering lots and lots of voters, and our touring teams have hit the road in full force, getting hundreds of people registered to vote and involved with HeadCount along the way!
Erin, Ashley, Stephanie and Ethan are our Dave Matthews Band touring team for the first leg of the tour. They got started two weeks ago in Pittsburgh and have been braving rainstorms, heat and long drives ever since. Bad weather hasnâ€™t gotten them down though â€“ theyâ€™ve gotten well over a thousand people registered to vote just a few weeks into the tour and are getting more and more people involved every night! Theyâ€™ll be in Hartford this weekend, and working their way to Darien Lake and Boston next week.
Our Pearl Jam tour kicked off this week in Florida. Amanda is our touring rep, hitting the road with the band in style as a part of their touring crew! Her and her volunteer teams got the tour off to a great start in Palm Beach and Tampa, getting hundreds of PJ fans registered to vote and informed about Headcount. A big â€˜register to vote with Headcountâ€™ shout out from Eddie Vedder was also a nice bonus and unexpected surprise for us!
Also hitting the road this week was our Jack Johnson team of Nicole and Johanna. They got their tour started in Indianapolis, braving rain with their hard core volunteer crew and getting over a hundred Jack fans registered to vote on their opening night.
Joining our touring teams on all of these dates are local Headcount volunteers â€“ our Team Leaders, Regional Cordinators and local volunteers, all of whom are coming out in full force and really helping us get thousands of people registered this summer.
Weâ€™ve got lots of dates ahead of us â€“ check back here often as â€˜on the road updatesâ€™ will start to roll in, check out our photos here, and be sure to sign up to volunteer if you havenâ€™t done so yet!
