Can fans vote for inductees?
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame began the “Fan Vote” in 2013, where the top five fan favorites are submitted as one official ballot for counting with the rest of the Voting Committees. Historically, 57 percent of artists who finish in the top five are inducted that year. Although it’s not a guarantee, the top winner of the fan vote has been inducted every year except for the Dave Matthews Band in 2020. The group was absent from the induction list, despite having racked up more than 1 million votes online.
