In case you have somehow missed it with everything else going on, this year is an election year here in the United States. That means that most of us are bombarded by political advertisements and commercials for both candidates, alongside nearly relentless campaigns that encourage us to get out and vote. These campaigns are important, as they provide one avenue for direct education and engagement for voters. In fact, basketball great Shaquille O’Neal knows all about voting campaigns and what a difference they can make.
Shaquille recently revealed that this year he voted for the first time at age 48. He shared the news in an episode of his podcast, The Big Podcast With Shaq, and he even explained why he waited this long to vote. He also described what the process of filling out his absentee ballot was like.
He shared that he voted because he doesn’t ever want to be a hypocrite, which is definitely something to be celebrated: “You know I always like being honest on my podcast. I’ve never voted before, America. But now I’m doing all these voting campaigns, and you know one thing I never like to do is be a hypocrite. In other words, America, I voted for the first time, and it feels good.“
