Jack Johnson to Highlight Rock the Vote Event

Rock the Vote, a non-partisan organization that encourages and registers young people to vote, will be making a stop in Happy Valley on September 19th from 12-4 p.m.  The Penn State stop is the last of a road trip that will have covered universities from Florida to Pennsylvania.

The stop will include free music from the likes of Jack Johnson, G. Love, and Animal Liberation Orchestra (ALO). According to the Rock the Vote website, there will also be free swag to accumulate, interactive activities, and of course the chance to register to vote for the upcoming election.

The event should be extremely helpful to new voters, as the Pennsylvania expanded voter identification law will be in effect this November. The law states that voters must present a valid photo ID before voting.

You can also volunteer at the event if you want, and probably get more free shit if you choose to do so!

Rock the Vote may be lost on the lingo the kids use these days, but it’s still an easy and fun way to register to vote and stay informed for the November election. And if voting isn’t your thing (even though it totally should be), you can at least jam to some Jack Johnson and ironically collect Rock the Vote stuff.
