While concerts aren't happening because of the coronavirus pandemic, Live Nation is having its venues turned into voting sites for the November elections. The Wiltern and Hollywood Palladium, both in Los Angeles, as well as Emo's in Austin and Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta have all been confirmed as polling locations, and in Philadelphia, The Fillmore is in the final stages of the vetting process that would allow it to become one, too. The promoter is discussing utilizing over 100 of its venues for this purpose with local officials.
"We are proud to partner with Live Nation and announce The Hollywood Palladium and The Wiltern will be Vote Centers in the upcoming Presidential General Election," Dean C. Logan, Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk, says. "Live Nation has stepped up to the mic in providing our community safe in-person voting experiences at two iconic music venues. It is collaborations such as this that demonstrate the spirit of community engagement and the strength of our democracy."
