My best memory of HeadCount is when Bob Weir and Michael Franti gave shout-outs during their performances. I literally got chills and was so proud to be part of an organization that is making a positive change.

Democracy only works if citizens are engaged and vote. HeadCount is helping restore our democracy by engaging and registering voters.

HeadCount allows you to witness the power of democracy one registration at a time. When you hold a fat stack of forms after a festival, you can feel the potential power.

Every time I go out and do an event, I work with the MOST amazing people. The people drawn to HeadCount are simply the finest humans on the planet. I struggle to comprehend the phenomenal circle of friends I’ve acquired though my HeadCount experiences. I am so fortunate to find myself leading groups of new HeadCounters year after year and I have yet to be disappointed by this incredible community.
