In a video on Instagram that shows her twerking, Lizzo called on her fans to register to vote in the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
Lizzo, dressed up as Uncle Sam, calls herself “Auntie Sam,” the female version.
“Auntie Sam out here doin what she gotta do to get y’all to vote,” she said in the caption, using her patriotic alter ego.
“Text LIZZOBEVOTING to 26797 to make sure you’re registered to vote, confirm your polling location, and get reminders for all your elections,” she added.
In an attempt to educate her fans on the importance of voting ahead of the November 3 polling date, Lizzo said, “Hey YOU. Have you felt the same disconnect from this country? Have YOU felt like this nation is your house but not your home? It’s because we are on stolen land trying to live within laws written by white men FOR white men in 1787.”
“I see YOU using your power of protest and your freedom of speech. I see YOU unlearning the narrow scope of our history and seeking the truth,” she added. “ITS TIME TO USE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE. WE NEED YOU. DID YOU KNOW?”
She pointed out that approximately four-in-ten eligible voters in the United States didn’t turn out to vote in the 2016 election.
