Gun-Control Activists Use March for Our Lives to register 5,000 New Voters

Gun-control activists at the March for Our Lives partnered with HeadCount, a supposedly non-partisan group, and registered nearly 5,000 voters at March for Our Lives rallies in thirty cities across the US.  HeadCount founder Andy Bernstein says they registered more people to vote than on any other day in its 15-year history.  On Sunday, HeadCount released a guide on how to conduct school and community voter registration drives.

The gun control activists behind Saturday’s March for Our Lives rally enlisted the help of several voter registration organizations with the aim of getting people to vote in favor of limiting Americans’ Second Amendment rights.

HeadCount, a 501(c)3 and 4945(f) organization that bills itself as a nonpartisan group that “promotes participation in democracy” partnered with the March for Our Lives and registered nearly 5,000 voters at March for Our Lives rallies throughout the U.S. in 30 cities.

A post on the group’s Facebook page announced that the organization registered “4,800 new voters” in one day at the March for Our Lives.

HeadCount founder Andy Bernstein said that with the help of nearly 2,000 volunteers who canvassed at Saturday’s march, his organization registered more people to vote Saturday than any other day in its 15-year history.

“This is the first time we’ve ever done a march,” Bernstein told BuzzFeed News.

The voter registration numbers from HeadCount do not include online voter registration and the number of voters registered through other voter registration organizations, according to HeadCount spokesperson Aaron Ghitelman.

Although the organization mostly focused on registering voters at concerts and music events before the March for Our Lives, the father of one of the gun control student activists at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School convinced the organization to partner with the anti-gun march.

Ghitelman told CNN that the father of Marjory Stoneman Douglas activist Cameron Kasky got in touch with the organization to get the group to register voters at the March for Our Lives.

Ghitelman told Breitbart News that HeadCount decided to show up at the march because when there is such a “groundswell of energy that people ask us to come [to their event], we show up.”

After the march, the organization announced that it would focus on getting high school students registered to vote. On Sunday, HeadCount released a guide on how to conduct school and community voter registration drives.
