"Every Vote Counts: A Celebration of Democracy," a nationally televised and streamed event, will air on CBS and streamed via CBS All Access on Thursday, October 29 at 9-10pm ET/PT. The special will also be available on iHeartMedia radio stations and app, Apple Music, Apple TV App, Amazon Music, Twitch, NowThis, YouTube, Twitter, TIDAL and Facebook, with more to be announced.

Hosted by Alicia Keys, America Ferrera, and Kerry Washington, "Every Vote Counts" will honor, and celebrate the power of voting through music, dance and dialogue. Artists, musicians, performers, and community leaders will come together for a nonpartisan celebration of American democracy, with the goal of uplifting the power of civic action and celebrating the precious value of every single citizen's right to vote.

"The purpose for this special is to remind and inspire all Americans of the power of their voice and their vote. It's a challenging time but we have the opportunity to continue to show up and shape the world we want to live in. In a democracy, every vote counts, so we want to encourage and uplift each other and remember we all have a say in the direction of our country because everyone's participation matters," said Keys."Also, for many young people across the country, this is their first time voting so we want to make sure they understand the magnitude of this time and learn why this is one of the most exciting moments in the Democratic process."

The special will feature musical performances, interviews with everyday voters, and speakers empowering citizens with incontrovertible information on how to vote and allay concerns they may have around voting amid a pandemic. Viewers will also be asked to create voting plans and build voting teams.

"I am honored to join my co-hosts in bringing together all of these amazing artists, musicians, community leaders and American voters to celebrate our democracy," added Ferrera. "Our right to vote has never been more precious or vital. This celebration is an opportunity to uplift our country and to inspire one another to joyfully act on our most fundamental right and responsibility as Americans. Our vote is our voice. And 'Every Vote Counts.'"

Every Vote Counts is a nonpartisan civic engagement event and is not a fundraiser. For tune-in information and to pledge to vote, visit www.globalcitizen.org/everyvote
