Says #iVoted Founder Emily White:
“We test drove a variety of platforms but realized that Chartmetric had exactly what we needed to excite and engage with music fans for this Fall’s Election.”
With the concert industry on hold during the pandemic, #iVoted is now offering artists the option of performing via webcast on Election Night, with fans gaining access to the stream by RSVP-ing w/ their selfie at home w/ their mail-in ballot.
In 2018, Drive-By Truckers, Playboi Carti, Jim James, Guster, Toro y Moi, Iron & Wine, Hoobastank, Good Charlotte, Nnamdi Ogbonnaya, Phoebe Bridgers, Living Colour, Superchunk, Dawes, Saves the Day, Underoath, Mike Doughty of Soul Coughing, and many more all played #iVoted shows on Election Night around the country.
Fans can also access the stream by submitting their selfie from outside of their polling place if in-person voting occurs.
White added that #iVoted just began reaching out to artists in swing states that fans are currently listening to per Chartmetric’s data and was blown away by the response.
“Considering we have interest from some of the largest touring acts in the country, as well as confirmations from over 20 artists after putting the word out to just our first data set of Wisconsin, I can’t wait to see what the #iVoted lineup looks on Election Day less than 6 months from now.”
