Rock the Vote 2008

No one is telling you to "Vote or Die" like the old Biggie coattail rider-turned entrepreneur did in 2004, but there are plenty of folks asking that you get your vote on during the 2008 election. Santogold, Q-Tip, and Talib Kweli are among the artists taking part in the latest version of the "Rock the Vote" tour, which compliments what is already the largest youth voter registration drive in history.

Apparently some 231,371 people have downloaded voter registration forms from Rock The Vote’s website in the last two weeks alone. If you have yet to register, for any reason at all, get it done while checking out the tour schedule at the link.

...and that wraps up our political coverage for the year.
