Despite currently being embroiled in the year’s most drama-laden movie release, Harry Styles is turning his attention to more pressing matters — American democracy — and inviting two voter registration drive participants to his annual “Harryween” concert.

Fans can enter Styles’ sweepstakes by checking their voter registration status through HeadCount, a nonprofit promoting turnout in the 2022 midterm elections. This year’s Harryween show on Oct. 31 will be held at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, according to Rolling Stone.

The British superstar has thrown extravagant Harryween celebrations before — he performed a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden last year while dressed as Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz.” This year, however, appears to be the first time Styles is using the fest to engage politically.

“In 2020, 78% of the people that HeadCount registered turned out to vote, so we know these artist partnerships are effective,” HeadCount co-founder and executive director Andy Bernstein told Billboard. “Having the support of individuals like Harry Styles has a tremendous impact.”

Winning the Harryween sweepstakes comes with two floor tickets to the show, travel accommodations, and various merchandise — including a poster signed by Styles.

Previous HeadCount partners include Ariana Grande, Megan Thee Stallion and Billie Eilish, though none appear to love Halloween as much as Styles. He went to the MTV VMA’s as a topless Miley Cyrus in 2013 and dressed up as Elton John in 2019, according to The Cut.

“Growing up in England, we like Halloween,” Styles told his Harryween crowd while dressed as Dorothy in 2021. “But we definitely didn’t get into it like you do. I look cute!”
