With just weeks until election day, Washington Post Live will host the third virtual event in our partnership with PEN America, “Voting Matters: Mobilizing the Vote,” to spotlight the lawmakers, advocates, and entertainers who are working to get out the vote and encourage young Americans to become more actively involved in democracy. Former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick will discuss his work energizing the Democratic base and mobilizing people to get involved through TogetherFund PAC, a political action committee organized to address the challenges many Americans face including rising health care costs, low wage jobs and limited access to quality education - in turn motivating Americans to be more active citizens. Zach Carothers, bassist of Portugal. The Man, and Amy Lee of Evanescence, will discuss their bands’ partnership with Headcount, a non-partisan group that stages voter registration drives at concerts, executes fan-based texting campaigns and more. Carothers and Lee will expand on the influence musicians and entertainers have in working to engage first-time voters and encourage young Americans to use their voice in the voting process.Washington Post Live is the newsroom’s live journalism platform, featuring interviews with top-level government officials, business leaders, cultural influencers and emerging voices on the most pressing issues driving the news cycle nationally and across the globe.
