HBO On An Election Spree
HBO, in fact, has released several digital videos in this regard. The most peculiar feature of these videos is that the HBO stars remain silent on a single day, making voters realize:
Right now there is only one voice we need to hear. Yours.
This silent initiative, however, recalled the low voter turnout of 2016. So, for the 2018 midterms, HBO decided to influence the spectators with sententious stardom that persuades Americans to use their voices.
HBO is offering an online landing page to register voters. HBO collaborated with Rock the Vote in this drive. Moreover, the entertainment platform is triggering a college ambassador program with Rock the vote across 50 campuses with 100 ambassadors. It also offers voter registration drives and a text-to-register feature.
‘Rock The Vote’ Wants You To Poll
American people, in fact, can vote for the upcoming U.S. midterm elections. Midterm elections are in spitting distance with truncate deadlines. To boost up the number of voters, eligible to vote in November, several campaigns have started across all 50 states.
Carolyn DeWitt, Rock the Vote president and executive director, however, stated.“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with HBO on this effort, there needs to be a heightened awareness of the importance of all American voices, especially those of young people. HBO’s commitment to engaging their viewers and emphasizing the power of youth voters is not only inspiring but critical in helping make an unprecedented impact at the polls this election season.”
HBO And Other Brands Are Calling Americans To Vote In The Midterm Elections
As a matter of fact, all our favorite media elements, channels, websites, and apps are supporting American voters. In fact, big names like Levi’s, Patagonia, the Gap, Walmart, and the North Face, have also joined Rock the Vote in a “Time to Vote” challenge, It is, perhaps, the easiest procedure as voters can register themselves online from anywhere without getting into the glitches of approaching the registrar’s office or doing extra formalities.
According to HBO, it is the only brand that sat back and listened rather than telling voters what to do. Across social media their message of silence stood out loud and clear – and it showed.
Rock the Vote is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization building the political power of young people through pop culture, music, art, and technology
