Frank Ocean Gives Away Free Merch To Voters In Support Of Stacey Abrams
"We're against gerrymandering. We're against voter ID laws. We're against voter suppression."
Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has the support of many entertainers outside of Georgia, including Frank Ocean. The singer-songwriter has provided a fun incentive to his young fans by giving away free merchandise for voting.
Ocean posted the call to action on his Tumblr account, sharing how voters in Houston, Atlanta, Miami, and Dallas can score the merch after sharing proof of their vote. “Bring proof (a photo of you at the ballot) that you voted to any of the locations below and get some free merch. Because God bless America,” the flyer reads. As Pitchfork points out, the states were picked "to support specific candidates” like Abrams in Georgia, Andrew Gillum in Florida, and Beto O’Rourke. While it is illegal to post selfies in the polls, voters can share pics outside of their designated polling place.
Ocean also launched the eighth episode of his Beats 1 show “blonded RADIO” Tuesday morning (Nov. 6.) Hosted by Vegyn and Roof Access, the group along with Ocean dives into right-wing conspiracies like #PizzaGate while condemning voter suppression.
