Timesuck: This tool allows you to vote for your favourite artist to be president

Tixel, an Australian fan-to-fan ticket reseller, commissioned a tool that ties in with your Spotify account and allows you to vote for your favourite artists for president of the US.

The tool generates a voting ballot based on your top Spotify acts.

I tried it and this is what I got. It’s not what I expected, though. I listen to a lot of ambient background music when I work, so my “vote” for president is for a playlist. And for reasons unknown, I’d prefer that the Guess Who be vice-president.

Compare that to the overall votes cast.
