Ariana Grande Fans Can Now Register to Vote During Her Sweetener Tour

Thank U, Next singer Ariana Grande kicked off her Sweetener Tour Monday and fans can expect something a little different as the 25-year-old makes 50 appearances across North America. 

Grande announced Friday that she partnered with HeadCount, a non-profit organization that aims to work "with musicians to promote participation in democracy in the United States," according to the organization's bio. 

Starting off at the Times Union Center in New York, HeadCount will set up booths at Grande's concerts where fans can become registered voters. 

"That's such a great idea!!! If every single young person voted we could all change the country of the USA for the better," one Twitter user wrote Monday. 

The 25-year-old singer is not the first musician to promote voter registration at their concert. In 2016, Coloring Book singer Chance the Rapper announced he would partner with NAACP to give concert-goers an opportunity to register at his Chicago show. 

“Chance the Rapper is an artist whose music praises and lifts up our common humanity, and whose call for action speaks to the yearning of this moment,” NAACP President and CEO Cornell William Brooks said in a statement.

"You are a superhero, just so you're aware," one Twitter user said at the time. "You probably don't realize it, but you are. thank you."
