With just weeks to go before the election, Tyler, the Creator took to Instagram to urge people, young people in particular, to make their way to the polls in November. "If you are young, and your fuckin back don't hurt, go to them polls and cast a fucking vote," he says in the 2-minute video.

While Tyler admits this would be his first time voting, he went on to share the issues that mattered to him most, including keeping art and music programming in public schools. "They've had the same curriculum since 1442, judging everybody on the same shit," he said. "I have female friends who need certain things...and I like being able to fuck on and marry whoever the fuck I want at any given moment. If we want to keep some of those options, then we have to start somewhere."

Tyler went on to urge people to physically go to the polls in light of Donald Trump's false comments implying mail-in voting would lead to widespread voter fraud. "Some of that mail-in shit, n*ggas gon try to call fraud," Tyler said. "I know them lines gon' be long, and it's gon' be hot. But please, do that."
