#iVoted Festival also launched the #iVotedEarly Sweepstakes last month where U.S. residents can submit a selfie from outside their nearest polling place or at home with a blank and unmarked ballot to win tickets to 600 concerts nationwide including Georgia shows from “Weird Al” Yankovic, Rina Sawayama, Better Than Ezra, Tigers Jaw, Maz Jobrani, Dhruv and more. All #iVotedEarly Sweepstakes entries are RSVP’d for #iVoted Festival’s election night webcast. Underage fans enter by letting event organizers know what election they will be 18 for and why they’re excited to vote. Non-U.S. residents can also RSVP to #iVoted Festival 2022 by letting the 501(c)3 non-profit know which artist they’re most excited to check out.
#iVoted Festival’s Founder & CEO Emily White had this to say about launching #iVoted, “I thought of #iVoted Festival after realizing various electoral margins were decided by the size of a concert venue and know that young people are historically a low turnout group. I thought, ‘Why don’t we produce a compelling concert to tie in voting and increase turnout?’” White’s women-led team has done just that, using data-driven methods that MIT analyzed showing #iVoted Festival increases turnout by over 7%. For context, traditional “get out the vote” drives generally increase turnout by 0.5-1%.
White has also been interviewing #iVoted Festival 2022 artists in “state” themed episodes to take listeners through the election year to from registration to turnout to issues we’ll all be voting on. The “Georgia” episode recently dropped featuring an interview with the Chief Legal Officer for the New Georgia Project Aklima Khondoker where she talks about the New Georgia Project, their achievements, and more. This is paired with new interviews with artists performing on the Music Midtown Well-Dunn Georgia Stage on election night. The #iVoted Festival Podcast is available wherever you get podcasts.
