Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and other stars have joined together to be part of the “Just Vote” campaign which hopes to register 50,000 voters before election day in November.
“Checking your voter registration status is an easy way to begin your journey of civic engagement,” a message from Global Citizen‘s website read. The comments were noted by Billboard magazine in a piece published Tuesday.

The statement continued, “Various artists will be offering exclusive experiences and rewards — from dance lessons to private concerts to signed instruments — to Global Citizens who check their voter registration status.”
According to the report:
Just Vote’s aim is to engage 1 million young voters and get 50,000 vote-aged Americans to register ahead of Nov. 3, 2020.
Some of the items people can win include a signed guitar by Taylor Swift, Usher “will be offering a dance lesson with his choreographer” to “winners who check their voter registration status” and others could “win a vinyl record signed by Eilish and some sweet merch,” per the website.
“With only a few months until the election, this is a pivotal moment to be launching Just Vote,” Andy Bernstein, executive director of HeadCount said, per People magazine. “The challenges of COVID-19 demand that we innovate the ways in which we engage potential voters.”
