Trey Songz sat down with Ourtime.org to discuss the importance of getting young people interested in taking part in the presidential election by exercising their right to vote. Ourtime.org has teamed up with A list celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Will Smith and Chelsea Clinton and various social media to spread the word on what the organization is all about and to reach the masses. Registering young Americans under 30 can help swing the Election! Trey talks about how he’s been a registered voter since he was eligible because his mom wasn’t going to have it any other way and why he believes young people don’t vote today. He explained:
I think the problem with our young people voting is that they don’t see it even possibly affecting their world. And so many times someone is put into office that says they’re gonna do this that and the other and it doesn’t happen. But it doesn’t happen overnight. Because your vote isn’t just one vote it turns into another vote and another and becomes 10,000 votes. And it ends up changing the world, but you have to see that as a possibility.
