Billie Eilish is joining forces with HeadCount, a non-partisan voter engagement organization, to get her fans voting in the 2022 U.S. midterm elections.
“I’m working with HeadCount to encourage everyone to show up at the polls and use their voice during these midterm elections,” Eilish said in a statement about her collaboration with the organization, which is part of its “Good to Vote” initiative.
Fans who check their voter registration status at HeadCount.org/Billie or by texting “BILLIE” to 57568 will get the opportunity to win a VIP trip for one winner and a friend to see Eilish perform live in Australia (on Sept. 10) and New Zealand (Sept. 13) on her Happier Than Ever world tour. The winner’s experience will include concert tickets, airfare, a hotel stay, and a signed merchandise package. Through HeadCount, fans are able to check their registration status, register to vote, and enter the contest.
“Billie has been a voting advocate and supporter of HeadCount since before she could even vote herself,” HeadCount co-founder and executive director Andy Bernstein said. “By hosting some lucky fans on the trip of a lifetime, together we hope to motivate thousands of young people to check their voter registration status or register to vote.”
Last month, Eilish added another leg to her tour, announcing six Asian dates this August. The shows will mark Eilish’s first-ever headlining shows in the continent. The singer had previously performed in Singapore, Tokyo, and Osaka in 2018 as part of the Laneway and Summer Sonic festivals respectively.
The new dates will take Eilish to cities across the Philippines, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Japan.
Earlier this year, Eilish and her brother FINNEAS won their first Golden Globe for their Bond theme, “No Time To Die.” The track was originally released in February 2020—before the accompanying movie was delayed several times due to the pandemic—and led the soundtrack for Daniel Craig’s final outing as the iconic British spy.
