Look no further than a new playlist series on Spotify from non-partisan group Election Defenders, whose Joy to the Polls campaign has helped develop voting-inspired playlists from artist like Swizz Beatz, Billie Joe Armstrong, Maggie Rogers and others.

“We’re thrilled to announce these playlists from so many wonderful partners, people and communities in every corner of the country,” Nelini Stamp, campaign director at Election Defenders, said in a statement. “We are calling on all voters to make their own playlists to deliver a clear, joyful message that we will protect our democracy from this pandemic and from voter suppression wherever it shows up.”

The Joy to the Polls campaign launched Oct. 24 at multiple polling centers in Philadelphia, where early voters standing in lines were entertained by trained Election Defenders volunteers who danced and sang to keep spirits high. Watch a video clip here.

Other artists contributing to the Joy to the Polls playlist series include Dead & Company, En Vogue, Questlove and DJ Jazzy Jeff. See the full list here.
