The NAACP just announced that they will be working with Chance The Rapper to launch the #staywokecampaign to promote voter registration this fall. Chance will give his concert go-ers the opportunity to register to vote at stops all across the country on his Magnificent Coloring World Tour, with a voting registration booth and an information desk set up and run by volunteers. This is a brilliant idea to inspire young people to use their voting rights, and having the opportunity to register while having fun at a concert is a great way to get people involved.
“Voting and becoming knowledgable about this year’s upcoming presidential election is imperative. With a great deal of help from the NAACP, I have been able to provide this awesome opportunity for people to sign up and make the pledge to vote at a few of my upcoming shows,” Chance said, via the NAACP. Chancellor Bennett, or Chance the Rapper, has been very active in expressing his support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement and other political issues, and now he’s stepping up and encouraging his fans to get involved in the voting process. With incredible music with great messages, and an amazing personality to match, this campaign just serves as another reason why he should be on your radar.
This is an amazing opportunity for our generation to step up and be the deciding factor for our future. Just remember, your vote can make a difference, and the right to vote isn’t a right every human being is blessed with in this world, so take advantage of the opportunity. The campaign drive starts at on September 24th in Chicago, and there are numerous other cities that concert attendees will have the opportunity to register at. If you’re interested, a list of cities is provided here, and if you’re not going to be able to make it to the Magnificent Coloring Tour, you can register to vote online here. #StayWokeAndVote.
