Rock the Vote!



Jelly of the Month Club Poster


Civic engagement means working to make a difference in the community. And voter participation is one of the cornerstones of a free country and representative government. Jelly of the Month Club wants you and your student leaders to join us in a “Rock the Vote” campaign leading up to the November 6th election.

1. Jelly is promoting voter registration efforts and would love to hear from you at If you and your student leaders are

involved in a voter registration drive or “get out the vote” campaign please send us videos or pictures of your student leaders helping out. We’d love to re-post and recognize their leadership and participation. Also, please send the name of your student leader to receive one free ticket and be honored at our upcoming show. If you want to participate in a voter registration drive send us a message and we’ll do our best to find one.

2. We are also promoting A PROMISE IS A PROMISE! We ask you all to encourage your kids to ask their parents, grandparents, neighbors and teachers to make a promise – to go out and VOTE! Making this simple commitment to a loved one sends a powerful message that they care and are willing to make a difference.

3. Finally, on Sunday November 4, come join us at the Gaslamp in Long Beach for a “Jelly Rocks the Vote Celebration” and take advantage of this ridiculously fun and entertaining way to empower the next generations with the knowledge that our government is one “of the people, by the people and for the people.” Let the universal language of music unite us all while exercising our inalienable rights. This all ages matinee show will be jam packed with great tunes, good vibes and good times and a few special guests, so grab your kids, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, sisters, brothers, neighbors and bring ‘em on down to get down with Jelly of the Month Club and secure your future!
