Nas voted for the first time in 2008, when he threw his endorsement behind the current President of the United States, Barack Obama. Now, along with OurTime.org, Nas is urging you to use your power at the polls this November.
“The future of this country is in the hands of the young people,” says Nas. ”We have the power, we can go to the polls in droves and vote to get the person we want. As a voter, now that I voted, I feel so much power that I didn’t feel before. Like, what I say matters.”
If you aren’t registered to vote, you can use the OurTime.org voter registration app below the video to exercise your right. It’s that simple. Check out Nas’ video down below.
