Before the country's midterm elections, Harry Styles is urging his American followers to register to vote by partnering with the non-profit organisation HeadCount.
According to Billboard, more than 54,000 individuals have signed up to vote as a result of the singer's campaign, with roughly 30,000 of those registrations occurring in the first day. Styles has now surpassed HeadCount's mark for the most prosperous campaign led by an artist.
Every new voter who registered through HeadCount was entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win tickets to the singer's annual "Harryween" show, which was held yesterday night (October 31) at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. It also comes after his endorsement of Beto O'Rourke, a Democratic contender, during his Austin performance the previous month.
Styles started working with HeadCount in September, and according to Andy Bernstein, the organization's co-founder and executive director, Styles' support has had a "tremendous impact."
He added: "This [support] is crucial for the midterms, which frequently get less media coverage than the presidential elections." It enables us to reach more potential voters and guarantees that people's voices are heard.
The Dave Matthews Band, Lizzo, Paramore, Noah Cyrus, Greta Van Fleet, and other notable musicians have also collaborated with HeadCount. At the future concerts featuring these musicians, each will have volunteers manning stations with information for prospective voters and those seeking to register. The organization's whole schedule is available here.
In support of his third solo album, "Harry's House," whose opening track, "Music From A Sushi Restaurant," had its music video released last week, Styles is presently playing in Los Angeles as part of his massive world tour, "Love On Tour." He presently has roles in the movies Don't Worry Darling and My Policeman, which are both playing in theatres.
