Grammy-winning rapper T.I., Jeezy, Lil Baby, Killer Mike and more are putting a huge emphasis on Georgia residents getting outside of their houses today. The music heavyweights are encouraging locals to go and vote in the state’s primary election.
Atlanta x Primary
Over the past few hours, the Atlanta natives lit up their social media feeds with primary posts with voting taking place today.
According to reports, some people have already experienced issues at the polling booths. Reports claim machine malfunctions have slowed down the primary voting process.
Atlanta voters haven’t had the smoothest process at the polls June 9 as they cast ballots for president, Congress, and state legislative seats. Many have reported long wait times, malfunctioning machines or none at all. Tuesday is the primary election for Georgia voters and according to several reports it’s not going as planned, with long lines and voting machine malfunctions. (Patch)

Before You Go
Rap star Cardi B recently spoke on the importance of voting. She credited the process as a key strategy to ultimately end police brutality and lessen law enforcement’s power.
“Motherf*ckers are educated. Motherf*ckers could take the grown and adult way and act peaceful, people are tired of that. Now this is what people have to resort to. And another thing, I also want to say this, another way for people to take power, I don’t want to make everything political but it is what it is. It’s by voting. And when I say voting, I’m not only talking about the president. We can vote for mayors. We can vote for judges and we can also vote for district attorneys. Yes, we can vote for these people for our community. We sure can. The people who are voting for these people are most likely cops, most likely rednecks. That’s why every single time some f*ck sh*t like this happens, it goes to their favor because these people have the power. The judges, DAs, they have the power to prosecute these cops when they do f*ck sh*t.” -Cardi B’s Twitter
