Billie Eilish has shared a new video in which she encourages her fans to vote in next week’s midterm elections in the United States.
Americans will go to the polls on Tuesday (November 8) to decide which seats the two major parties will fill in both houses of Congress.
In July, the singer partnered with non-profit organization HeadCount to encourage his fans to participate in the election, and has now shared a new video message to spread the word.
Speaking on Instagram, she said: “I want to explain why I’m going to vote this year, and how important I think it is that you vote too.
“I see what’s on the ballot, and what’s at stake, and it scares me. Our rights, our freedoms, and our future are at stake, and if we don’t show up, there’s a very small chance we’ll see a national abortion ban without exception. “
He added: “They also want to take away our freedom to marry that we love, restrict the right to vote, and enact laws that threaten the progress that must be made on climate change.”
“The only way to be sure of the future is to do it ourselves, so we have to vote on or before November 8. Please I promise you will make a plan to vote. We are going to show to them what our power looks. good.”
Earlier this year, Eilish and Finneas met with President Joe Biden at the White House. The couple, along with their parents Maggie and Patrick, were invited to meet the US president after he supported Biden during the 2020 US election.
Eilish previously performed in support of Biden at the 2020 Democratic National Committee virtual convention, where she gave her first public performance of her song “My Future.”
Another musician who joined HeadCount before the election is Harry Styles, who has over 54,000 people signed up as part of HeadCount’s “Good To Vote” initiative, with almost 30,000 registered in the first 24 hours.
With that, Styles has broken the HeadCount record for the most successful campaign by a musician.
