Along with headline entertainment consisting of comedy bits, stand-up acts and a larger-than-life musical performance, the special will provide information on voting, highlighting potential procedural changes caused by the pandemic, so that every voter has the knowledge and incentive to participate in the election this fall.
“We have a societal responsibility to participate in our country’s democracy,” said Tom Werner. “This nonpartisan special will, through comedy, encourage people to vote this November.”
“Voter participation is in ATTN:’s DNA, and we hope that we can create an event that will speak to all generations, young and old, in a way that shows them that by engaging in the political process, we have an exceptional opportunity to have our voices and values reflected at every level of government,” added ATTN: co-founder Matthew Segal.
Launched by Michelle Obama, When We All Vote is a national, nonpartisan nonprofit that brings together citizens, institutions, brands, and organizations to increase participation in every election. The organization is committed to closing the race and age voting gap and empowering all eligible voters to cast their ballot by harnessing grassroots energy, establishing strategic partnerships, and implementing digital organizing strategies, with the ultimate goal of changing the culture around voting.
