More than 100,000 people registered to vote in 24 hours following a Tesla giveaway by Youtube star David Dobrik.  

Dobrik partnered with the organization HeadCount to give away five Tesla vehicles to those who sign up through a link shared to his 5.5 million Twitter followers. HeadCount's website lets you know if you are registered to vote and makes it easier to register if you aren’t already.

The Youtube star is a Slovak immigrant and a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. As a noncitizen, he is not eligible to vote in the upcoming presidential election, which could wind up determining the fate of the DACA program. 

Dobrik’s voter registration push comes nearly a month away from Election Day.
