When I was asked to participate in BET's Voice Your Vote campaign, I knew immediately it was something I'd be proud to be a part of. I don't consider myself a hyper-political person, but I do believe in being aware of important issues and the people who are chosen to represent our communities and lead our country. I believe in the responsibility we all have to exercise our rights and make our vote count and our voice heard.
The stakes of this election are higher than ever and as the current socio-political landscape, recent history and escalating events of today continuously show us, silence is no longer an option. If you aren't already, register to vote now at BET Vote 2016
