With a nod to his "Turn Out For What" Rock the Vote campaign, rapper Lil Jon complained this morning on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram that he was forced to board an early flight from L.A. to Georgia to vote in person in today's election after he never received a requested absentee ballot.
Lil Jon, who appears to be registered to vote in Georgia, claims he did not receive an absentee ballot at his Los Angeles home. Polls close at 7 p.m. in Georgia.
It would look pretty bad if he didn't vote on Election Day. Lil Jon is the latest spokesperson for Rock the Vote, the youth-engagement organization. Last month, the group released a music video featuring the rapper at a polling place surrounded by other celebrities dancing to "Turn Out for What," a get-out-the-vote remix of his hit song "Turn Down for What."
That's some damn impressive commitment to participatory democracy there, especially from a royal. He is, apparently, still extremely crunk. But then, as National Journal points out, it's easy to jet out east for an election when you can buy the plane. Election after party at the Buckhead Diner, y'all.
