“Hey what’s up, everybody? It’s Ye and I’m here at the county clerk’s office and I wanted to show you how I just registered to vote,” Kanye said in the video.
“I just want to show everybody how easy it is to vote here,” the musician told the guy behind the desk before filling out a new voter registration form.
“So it’s a lot of people who think they can’t vote because they’re a convicted felon but they actually can ask for their rights back,” West said to the employee who responded, “Yup.”
“Why do other states make it so complicated to vote?” Kanye asked in the video. (RELATED: Kanye Talks Contracting Coronavirus, Why He’s Wary Of A Vaccine, And Running The WH Like Wakanda In ‘Black Panther’)
“The statues are set up by legislatures. So the people they’ve elected to the house of representative and senate are the ones that set up, they have bills that set up those statues,” the employee responded.
