Television personalities Rocsi and Free have teamed to remind fans to exercise their right to vote in today's midterm elections.
Via promotional video, Rosci stressed the importance of today's elections.
"November 2nd is going to be a big day for us," Rosci said in a video. "The mid-term elections play a big role on the presidential election coming up in 2012 and I don't know what side you're siding on, but Barack Obama is up for re-election in 2012 but none of that will matter if you don't go out and vote November 2nd. You won't have any idea which party will have the takeover in a couple years." (99 Problems)
Free concurred by stating eligible voters should research and vote for the candidate they feel would execute results.
"The mid-election is very important, go out and vote because these people you're voting into office are going to be the people standing behind the people you want to vote," Free added. "That doesn't mean go to the poll and not have any indication for who you're voting for and just pull levers. Do your research and go online. Make sure to go to 99Problems.com to get information on the candidates. Don't just go and vote for anybody." (99 Problems)
In a new ad, Jay is seen speaking to fans about the importance of exercising suffrage rights.
During the 2008 presidential race, Jay-Z joined Barack Obama on the campaign trail to encourage young people to vote. With the crucial November elections just a month away, the rapper is once again calling on fans to hit the polls. Watch Jay-Z's new PSA for Vote Again 2010 and HeadCount.org. "I wanna say something really important but really quick, I'm not gonna preach to you, but we did something really special this year. Just show that our generation changed the world, it never happened before. We absolutely changed the world. We changed the world. So it just goes to show, anything is possible. Fight for what's right, fight for what you believe in and stay forever young." (Rolling Stone)
For 2012, President Barack Obama is reportedly looking to recruit Jay-Z for his campaign.
During his 2008 Presidential campaign, Barack Obama relied heavily on mobilizing youth and connecting with the younger generations through speeches, ads and an online presence. Now, with an eye on his 2012 Presidential reelection campaign, there's been talk that Obama's camp may enlist the help of Jay-Z. "I can't believe you've finally heard the chatter about [Jay] replacing Larry Summers," Deputy White House Press Secretary William Burton joked with the New York Post. "In all seriousness, keep in mind he was pretty active during the 2008 election, so I don't think it'd surprise anyone that [Jay] would be involved again. But it's a little premature." (XXL Mag)
