CLEVELAND — The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has teamed up with the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections in a voter education partnership as the general election nears.

The partnership will see voter education and registration opportunities onsite during the Rock Hall's Resident Rockers Showcase of the Live and Local Series of free concerts. The concert series will combine both music and voter education.

"We are very excited to be a partner with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as they share our goal of voter education and engagement," said Anthony Perlatti, Director of the Board of Elections. "These events are a great way to have fun and to get prepared to vote at the same time."

The concerts present an opportunity for the general public to register to vote or to update their names and address prior to the October 5, 2020 registration deadline. Vote-by-Mail Ballot Applications will also be made available to voters for completion during the series.

A number of job opportunities for the  upcoming Nov. 3, 2020 election will also be made available. The board of elections will be accepting applications for 5,000 precinct election officials to work polls on election day, earning up to $275 for assisting voters. Temporary election officials positions are also open beginning immediately who will perform a variety of tasks in preparation for the Election. 

All shows are free and will be held on the Rock Hall's plaza on Thursdays and Saturdays between Sept. 17 and Oct. 3 from 5-7 p.m. Food and beverage trucks will be onsite with socially distanced outdoor seating available. Reservations can be made online at rockhall.com.
