Midterm elections are just days away, and the youth organization The League of Young Voters Education Fund doesn’t want your vote to go up in smoke. They have announced their ‘Pledge To Vote’ campaign for the 2010 November 2 midterm elections and are commissioning the support of Hip-Hop heads to urge the youth to get out and cast their ballot.

Rapper and weed connoisseur Wiz Khalifa recently sat down with the The League to discuss his thoughts on the legalization of weed in California and the importance of getting your voice heard at the polls. The Pittsburgh native expressed his thoughts on rocking the vote, saying,

“Make sure you get out there and vote on November, it counts…No matter what it is for. If its something you believe in, go out there and support it.”

The LYVEF is an organization with a focus on non-college youth, youth from low-income communities and communities of color. In an effort to bring awareness to the midterm elections, LYVEF is encouraging young urban voters to pledge and register to vote at, to voice their opinions and be proactive in the change they want to see in their communities.

Other Hip-Hop supporters include Jermaine Dupri, Far East Movement and Big Tigger.
