Despite challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans are showing that they will not shy away from their important civic duty of voting this year. In fact, as of Thursday morning, more than 77 million Americans already cast their ballots.
It reflects an inspiring commitment to the building blocks of democracy. To celebrate the joy and importance of voting, artists, musicians, performers, and community leaders will come together on Thursday, Oct. 29 — five days before Election Day — for the broadcast special Every Vote Counts: A Celebration of Democracy.
The nonpartisan event will encourage Americans to get to the polls in the final days of the 2020 election season, and remind viewers that a strong democracy depends on civic engagement and fair elections.
Produced by Live Nation, Global Citizen, and Live Animals, the hour-long event will air on Thursday, Oct. 29, at 9 p.m./8 p.m. CT on the CBS Television Network and CBS All Access, as well as iHeartMedia radio stations and app.
It will also stream Friday, Oct. 30, at 9 p.m. ET on Apple Music, Apple TV App, Facebook, NowThis, TIDAL, Twitter, and YouTube. You can find more details on how to tune in here.
