Charlamagne Tha God, radio personality of nationally syndicated Power 105 “Breakfast Club” and Star on MTV2 “Uncommon Sense” will serve as a spokesperson for the campaign. Respect My Vote! targets voters in urban communities and on college campuses, ages 18-40 years-old, to register and get out to vote.
Respect My Vote! is a national Hip Hop culture-based campaign that reaches the disenfranchised with celebrity spokespeople, social media influencers, and community leaders. People can register to vote at www.respectmyvote.com, and join the campaign by pledging to vote, signing up to volunteer in their communities, and spreading the word through their social networks online. Starting in the month of May, Respect My Vote! will implement on-the-ground voter registration drives in cities and on campuses across the country with emphasis on states such as Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Colorado, Nevada and North Carolina. The grassroots drives will be active through voter registration deadlines and then will become major voter turnout drives to get voters to the polls for early voting and on Election Day.
