WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — Have you ever been at an Ariana Grande concert and thought to yourself, "Hmm, I should resister to vote?"
Good news! Now you can do both. The 25-year-old pop star has partnered with HeadCount, a voter-registration advocacy group, to allow fans to register to vote during her Sweetener tour.
"Together, we designed #thankunextgen, a program to help Ariana's fans make their voices heard," HeadCount said in a tweet.
The initiative also has an option for fans under the legal voting age to text ARIANA to 40649 to set a reminder for them to vote on their 18th birthday. There are also options to contact legislators and volunteer. HeadCount has partnered up with other big name acts before, including JAY-Z, Dave Matthews Band and Phish, with more to come in the near future, according to CNN.
Grande's partnership with HeadCount received mixed reactions on social media.
If the reason you’re voting is because ariana grande set up registration then maybe you shouldn’t be voting 🤷🏼♀️ i’m just sayin— Maura (@maurafoxx) March 19, 2019
"If the reason you're voting is because ariana grande set up registration then maybe you shouldn't be voting," said one Twitter user named Maura.
Others saw the partnership as an opportunity.
"With @ArianaGrande having voting booths at her concert, I know I will actually have the motivation to do it for once so thank u," Twitter user @wynnderpie wrote.
HeadCount's goal is to "translate the power of music into real action," according to the organization's website.
"By reaching young people and music fans where they already are — at concerts and online — we make civic participation easy and fun," says the site.
HeadCount claims to have registered approximately half a million voters since opening shop in 2004.
Unlike some artists that shy away from politics, Grande has been outspoken about her beliefs. She is in favor of gun control and performed at the March for Our Lives in 2018. She is also supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Would you rather have a right to vote and never move, or be able to move whenever but never vote?
