In an interview with MTV, rapper T.I. revealed that, despite his status as a convicted felon, he will be eligible to vote in the upcoming presidential election. The superstar explained that this election is important to him and made sure that other citizens with criminal backgrounds understand what their options are.
“I am able to vote because I have served my time, I’m off probation, so I can re-register just like each and all of you can,” he said. “If you are off from probation, you are not serving a sentence — matter of fact, if you are out on bond and have not yet been convicted, you also may vote.”
“I’m going to make it my business to go out there and vote,” Tip stated.
