A little announcement from HeadCount....


A little announcement from HeadCount - Jim
Pollock, perhaps the most popular poster artist in the live music scene -
designed a postcard that HeadCount will be giving away for free at Phish
shows this summer. Release is copied below and attached. The art work is
also attached.

Studies have shown that “Pledge to Vote” postcards bearing a voter’s
signature help increase voter turnout. This, however, is the first time
anyone has used limited-edition artwork from rock poster artists on voter
pledge postcards.

“It will be a great reminder to hang on your fridge,” said HeadCount
executive director Andy Bernstein. “It’s a reminder of Phish tour, and a
reminder of your pledge to vote.”

He said the Pollock postcards will initially only be available at Phish
concerts, but if any are left over they will be distributed at festivals or
concerts by other bands.

The #GoVote series began in 2012 in a Tumblr campaign
involving work by hundreds of artists. This
year, HeadCount is adding the element of postcards, as well as musicians
posting for photos with the #GoVote artwork. The campaign will culminate on
Election Day, when hundreds of musicians and entertainers post their photos
on social media. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of fans will receive their
postcards in the mail that week.
