NEW YORK, March 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — SiriusXM announced today the launch of «Urban View Vote» – a nonpartisan, midterm election year voter registration campaign designed to raise awareness about voter registration opportunities throughout the fifty states.  SiriusXM’s Urban View channel will roll out an «Urban View Vote» vehicle to tour multiple states – visiting college campuses, community centers, and other key locations where citizens will get the information necessary to have a voice and join the ranks of America’s voters.  «Urban View Vote» will kick off on March 22 in Ft.

«This is a crucial time in our country’s history to register new voters, and Urban View listeners will lead the way,» says Karen Hunter, Urban View host and Programming Consultant, SiriusXM.  «On Urban View, we don’t just talk about issues, we take action. Now more than ever, we want people to know their voting rights and to empower them to take an active role in their futures. Our hashtag – #10for2018 – reflects our goal that every listener will inspire 10 people they know to get registered.»
