Rock Rap & Register is a non-partisan voter registration drive started in 2004 by co-founders Marc Odien and Dewitt Lee through WNYmedia Network. Our event in 2004 was one of the first public event 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 have changed the event from a one-day mega event to a month-long part virtual /part offline series of events for the purpose of registering as many people to vote before the October 9th deadline.
