Snoop Dogg has teamed up with two voting advocacy groups, Rock The Vote and 1 VoteCloser, and social justice initiative OneOpp for an online voter registration drive called #VoteWithSnoop. Snoop said, “This is gonna be the first election I am voting in. How the system is set up, I honestly didn’t know that I was allowed to vote based on my past history,” he says, likely referring to the fact that he has done time in jail. “My record has been expunged so I’m gonna be out there this election. I have to get involved.”
Snoop continued, “As I’m looking around at what is happening in the world right now, I know that we need to make an immediate change and we can’t sit back idle, which is why, along with OneOpp, I’ve partnered with Rock The Vote and 1VoteCloser. I’m gonna use my voice and Influence to let people know that the only option is to get out and vote.” The drive will run through the election on November 3.
