Axl Rose Goes ‘Blue’ Voting for Mid-Term Elections
Have you voted yet or will you vote in this year's mid-term elections? There appears to be more push than ever to get out to the polls, with many attempting to stress the importance of voting in this election. Axl Rose is doing his part to encourage a rush to the voting booths, revealing that he just voted by mail and urging his fans to "Vote Blue ... Bitches!!"
The Guns N' Roses frontman tweeted a photo of his return envelope that he was sending to the County of Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk to make sure that his voice was counted among those in the key political categories that affect him both in terms of national representation as well as certain California state local issues.
The mid-term elections take place Nov. 6, but there are some who are voting early by mail. During the upcoming election, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be voted upon as well as 35 seats of the 100 member Senate. Thirty-six of the U.S. states will also be holding gubernatorial elections. If you're not sure where or how to vote, check here.
As for Rose's voting suggestion, it should come as no surprise that he's leaning toward the Democratic party as he has been openly critical of the Trump administration on social media both in the lead up to Donald Trump's inauguration and during his presidential run. Most recently he was critical of Kanye West's visit to the White House to meet with Donald Trump, calling it a "joke" that wouldn't solve anything.
In the past, he was critical of Trump's appointment of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, called out Trump again for his tantrum against Sessions and he's taken his shots against Vice President Mike Pence and First Lady Melania Trump. He also notably stated earlier this year that The White House "is the current U.S. gold standard of what can be considered disgraceful."
