Legend, who releases his new single “Love Me Now” on Friday, will hit college campuses to urge millennials to register to vote. Ohio’s voter registration deadline is Tuesday, Oct. 11, and early voting starts the next day. Legend is expected to hold a concert in Cincinnati.
Legend will urge Ohioans to check their registrations and make a plan to vote early. As of Monday, 957,260 Ohioans have requested absentee ballots for the Nov. 8 election. This is slightly more than the 922,199 absentee ballots that had been requested by this point in the 2012 election when a record 1.87 million ballots were cast early by mail or in person.
