Last night at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), students and community members rallied for Andrew Gillum in a special concert hosted by Angela Rye and Diddy— special guests included FAMU alum, Will Packer, along with Tiffany Haddish, Dj Khaled, and Quavo (one of the three members of Migos) who was a surprise performer.

There are still states where you can walk up on Election Day and VOTE— California, D.C., Illinois and Connecticut are just a few of the places where you can register anytime. So, there is no excuse not to vote or at least make sure you help someone get to the polls today.
Don’t forget to VOTE today.
