Wilco, Capitol Theatre and Ticketfly Team Up; Donate to HeadCount’s #GoVote Campaign to Drive Turnout in November Mid-Term Elections

Ticketfly and Concert Venue to Direct Portion of Ticket Sales to Voter Turnout Efforts led by HeadCount

Wilco announced a special collaboration with The Capitol Theatre and Ticketfly to donate a portion of ticket sales from their concerts on Oct. 28 and Oct. 29 in Port Chester, New York, to the non-profit group HeadCount. The donation will directly support HeadCount’s “#GoVote” campaign, aimed at driving voter turnout in the midterm elections in November.

“This will make a huge difference as we gear up for the elections in November. We are running a big get-out-the-vote initiative in the next two months. Every dollar translates into more people at the polls,” said HeadCount Executive Director Andy Bernstein.

HeadCount’s team will be at Wilco’s Capitol Theatre concerts on Oct. 28th and 29th encouraging attendees to turn out in the upcoming elections. These are two of more than 600 live music events where HeadCount will register voters and promote voter participation this year.  HeadCount also has a partnership with the Capitol Theatre to send area teachers to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame and Museum for curriculum training on how to bring the history of music and activism into their classrooms.
