For students there is also a helpful student voter ID requirements map that gives a color-coded map and key to easily distinguish what your state accepts. HeadCount.org states that, "Student IDs are accepted as ID in most states, but may need to meet other requirements, such as including an expiration date." They suggest referring to the voter ID requirements page in such cases where there may be other requirements.

With the help of Google Maps, they also can help you find your polling place. After inputting your address information, it displays your closest polling place. It also displays the ballot summary of all the options that are on your ballot in your area. There is also a link to your state's voter ID requirements near the bottom.

HeadCount is a grassroots organization that reaches out at festivals, concerts and community events to focus on educating and increasing voter registration and action. They are currently involved with over 80 musical artists. Some of the bands and artists that work with HeadCount include Jack Johnson, Maroon 5, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Jason Mraz, and more. Volunteering at these concerts and festivals with HeadCount is widely encouraged and accepted. You can find out more information about volunteering on their site.

Their vision is the belief that musicians and fans can help raise more social and political awareness. They want to shape policy and culture by gathering musical communities into putting forth an effort as a political power.
