‘For Whom the Bell Polls’ uses music to promote the vote


In preparation for Election Day on Nov. 8, all U-M community members are invited to vote on the music that will be played that day from campus’ two carillon towers.

The most-voted-for music in the “For Whom the Bell Polls” project will be played Nov. 8 in two 30-minute recitals: Burton Memorial Tower on Central Campus at noon, and Lurie Tower on North Campus at 1:30 p.m.

Voting is conducted by using an online form.

This effort is being organized by Carson Landry, a carillon graduate student in the School of Music, Theatre & Dance, in partnership with the campuswide get-out-the-vote initiative, Turn Up Turn Out, to increase student voter engagement.

Along with submitting song requests, campus community members are encouraged to make an Election Day voting plan.
