Today is National Voter Registration Day in the U.S., though voting is a near-global phenomenon we hope all eligible Spotify listeners participate in 😉 The U.S. version of the Play Your Part hub this month is focused on Voter Rights and Representation.

 

First things first: Are you registered to vote if you are eligible?

 

If not, check out our partner Headcount here to start the process. (You can also access this page through the Spotify mobile app Play Your Part hub).

 

Second: First time voting, or a little rusty on what you should do to prep? Listen to these episodes and tell us in the comments below, what are some podcasts you've checked out to help you prepare to vote?

Two things I did immediately when I turned 18: Registered to vote and buy a scratch ticket. I won $30 on the scratch ticket.
