Young superstar Billie Eilish is using her voice to encourage young fans to vote in the upcoming US presidential election.

Eilish posted a video on Super Tuesday saying, “Like a lot of you, I’m going to be voting for the first time – and so are you. You’ve got to make sure you’re registered to vote already.”

HeadCount will be joining the singer on her WHERE DO WE GO? world tour, heading up their initiative with the slogan WHERE DO WE VOTE?, which aims to improve voter turnout among Eilish’s younger fans.

Remember when Billie Eilish sampled a Sydney pedestrian crossing in global hit bad guy?

The director of HeadCount Andy Bernstein has previously referenced the company’s partnership with Eilish, who has demonstrated her concern for world politics, speaking up on issues like climate change.

“She is one of the most popular young artists in the world right now. More importantly, she truly cares about voting and democracy,” he said at the time.

“Even though she isn’t old enough to vote herself, she has pre-registered in California and spread the word to fans of all ages that you can be an active citizen no matter how old you are.”

The WHERE DO WE GO? world tour starts tonight in Miami and will make its way across the US, Europe, and Asia.
