Offset Encourages Young People to 'Get to the Polls and Vote': 'Our Voices Matter'
Offset has an empowering message for voters — especially the nation's youth.
"It's your boy Offset, I just want to holla at you guys about the importance of voting," the Grammy-winner began. "It's very important for us to get out here and get to the polls to vote for our communities. Let's save our communities."
He went on: "Especially as young folks, you know what I'm saying. The numbers right now, we're kind of low on voting. So, I would like for us to get it up. We matter, we mean something to the world. We mean something to our community. We can't keep keeping our voice quiet. Our voices matter, so let's get together. Let's do it. Let's turn up. We can have fun, but it's time to handle business and we're running out of time. So, let's get to them polls and vote, ASAP."
The video is in support of Nike and rideshare app Lyft's current promotion that gives $10 off of voters' rides to polling and registered ballot dropbox locations in major cities: Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Memphis, Miami, Milwaukee and Portland.
The weeklong deal — valid to Lyft customers using discount code NIKE2020 — is applicable every day through Oct. 30 between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. local time.
