Emily White and Pat Sansone (Wilco) join us to discuss #IVoted, a project that works with venues to allow voters into shows for free on election day. Ivy Bryan, artist liaison for HeadCount, explains how they’ve registered over 500,000 voters with the help of musicians. Jessica George, executive director of RPM, shares strategies artists can use for positive change ahead of and after the midterm elections.
