Charlamagne Tha God Encourages The New Generation To Vote


It’s common to not be entirely satisfied with a political candidate. Every party whether it’s Democrats, Republicans or a third party, might have unsettling feelings about a particular politician in office or one running for office. The only way to make a difference is to vote. That is why Charlamagne Tha God and many other celebrities are turning to social media to encourage the youth to make their voice known by voting.

Charlamagne Tha God has persuaded his Instagram followers to register to vote by their state’s registration deadline. He noted October 9th was the last day to register in 15 states which included Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas.

Charlamagne Tha God attached a clip from his hit show, The Breakfast Club, urging his viewers to raise the number of voters to an all new record. He insisted to not only vote in this election but in every election to follow. Social media hashtags and being involved in protests are fine, but showing up to the polls and casting a ballot is where the real power is.

In 2016, Charlamagne Tha God was a spokesperson for “Respect My Vote”, a campaign for The Hip Hop Caucus. This campaign was to inspire the new generation to unleash their voice by registering to vote. He understands the steps it takes to obtain rights from his ex-offender background. Voting is incredibly vital for the future and mounding of the country.

During the presidential elections in 2016, only 56% of registered voters casted ballots. The millennials had the lowest record of ballots casted than any other age group. That is why Charlamagne Tha God and many other celebrities are using their voice to influence this generation to register before their state’s deadline and vote on November 6th.
