As part of the campaign, which aims to register 50,000 young people to vote ahead of this November’s U.S. elections, participating artists are donating exclusive items, memorabilia and experiences. To be entered for a chance to win, all you have to do is check your voter registration status.

Weir’s prize is a signed guitar and Vedder’s is an autographed ukulele, while Kravitz is offering a virtual hang-out session.

Other artists who’ve joined up with Just Vote include Bush‘s Gavin Rossdale and Dave Matthews. Among the previously announced stars who have donated prizes to the campaign are Taylor Swift, Usher and Billie Eilish.
