turn out for what?

Lil Jon flew across the country to vote when he didn't receive his absentee ballot

Lil Jon won't let a missing absentee ballot keep him from voting.

The rapper posted a photo of himself on his Instagram page with a caption indicating that he was flying from Los Angeles to Georgia to vote in person. Apparently, Lil Jon never received the absentee ballot he requested be delivered to his L.A. home.

Lil Jon, naturally, added the #TurnOutForWhat hashtag to the photo, a reference to his position as spokesperson for the youth-engagement group Rock the Vote. Last month, Rock the Vote released "Turn Out for What," which featured Lil Jon and other celebrities encouraging young people to vote in Tuesday's midterm elections. --Meghan DeMaria
