(AllHipHop News) The League of Young Voters is on a quest to ensure that all eligible voters make it to the polls this November. The voter engagement organizer recently wrapped up a whirlwind #Ignite2012 tour of key cities across the country with celebrities such as Rocsi Diaz and journalists Shaheem Reid and Dream Hampton to encourage the youth vote.
Among the main issues confronting voters this year, according to The League of Young Voters, is voter suppression, a systematic effort to keep certain groups of people from the polls, thereby swaying the vote in the direction of a particular party’s candidates.
View a video below featuring Rob “Biko” Baker as he and The League travel the country to educate young voters about their rights, dispel the myths about voting, and shine a spotlight on the issues that matter in 2012:
