Rock Rap & Register is a non-partisan voter registration drive started in 2004 by co-founders Marc Odien and Dewitt Lee through WNYmedia Network. The event in 2004 was one of the first public events held in Buffalo Central Terminal and featured a day full of music, informational tables, voter registration drive, and civic participation.
Due to COVID restrictions in 2020, we moved the event from a one-day mega event to a part virtual /part offline series of events for the purpose of registering as many people to vote before the October 9th deadline.
Rock Rap & Register is powered by headcount.org and various local organizations dedicated to voter registration across WNY. A full list of supporting organizations and full information can be found on rockrapregister.com
