#iVoted is an initiative founded by entrepreneur Emily White, Mike Luba, and Pat Sansone of Wilco / The Autumn Defense. In 2018 #iVoted activated over 150 venues in 37 states to let fans into venues on November 6th, 2018 (the United States’ national election night), who showed a selfie from outside of their polling place.
Our mission was and is to increase voter turnout.
In 2020, #iVoted pivoted due to the pandemic and launched the largest digital concert in history, which took place on November 3rd, Election Night. Over 450 artists performed at the inaugural #iVoted Festival, all curated per the data of the top streaming artists in and from key swing states. Fans RSVP’d to access the stream with a selfie at home with their blank and unmarked ballot. Or from outside of their polling place. Underage fans RSVP’d by letting us know what election they will be 18 for and why they’re excited to vote. International fans RSVP’d to let us know which artist they were most excited to check out.
