Montana-based promoter Logjam Presents has announced a partnership with Forward Montana Foundation to create “Amplify Montana” – a non-partisan voter registration initiative dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of voting at music events, concerts and shows.
“Our partnership with Forward Montana is focused on increasing voter participation,” said Nick Checota, owner of Logjam Presents. “With an emphasis on younger members of our community – a group that in many cases has become disenfranchised and unengaged – we hope this initiative will amplify the importance of participating in the election process.”
As part of National Voter Registration Day on September 25, Forward Montana Foundation will host voter registration tables within both of Logjam’s Missoula venues – the Wilma and the Top Hat.
Concertgoers are encouraged to check in at the table, register to vote at their current address and learn more about the upcoming election. Forward Montana will be distributing schwag as well as non-partisan voter guides to help new voters navigate the upcoming election.
“Forward Montana Foundation is focused on creating a culture of year-round, civic engagement,” said Rachel Huff-Doria, Forward Montana Foundation executive director. “As a young-person led organization, we know first-hand there are a lot of barriers to young people voting. That’s why we meet young people where they’re at – whether that’s on campus, out in the park or at concerts.”
The Amplify Montana initiative will allow Forward Montana to showcase their efforts at key Logjam music events throughout Montana. For more information, please contact Logjam Presents CEO/Talent Buyer Nick Checota at firstname.lastname@example.org
