Combs’ Citizen Change will launch a three-day get out and vote drive in

the nation’s swing states, reminding people to vote in the upcoming November

2nd elections.

The drive kicks

off Tuesday in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Combs will be joined buy such celebrities

as Leonardo DiCaprio and singer Mary J. Blige.

And like the presidential

candidates themselves, Combs will visit the states of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania

and Florida.

The Citizen Change

rallies take place in the cities of Detroit, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh

and Miami.

Combs said there

are 40 million eligible voters between the ages of 18 and 35, which he says

could be the group that decides the next president.

"To see one

day when (the candidates) talk about the needs and concerns of young people,

we have to make sure that we also put the pressure on them in the swing states

to recognize that these are the people that are going to put them into office,"

Combs told the Associated Press.

"The sleeping

giant has awoken and the forgotten ones, this group of 40 million voters, are

going to be the deciding factor, because their votes have not been counted,"

he added.
