Last night in Chicago, Chance the Rapper led a parade of thousands to the polls for early voting. The #paradetothepolls happened after a free 3 p.m. concert at Petrillo Music Shell in Grant Park featuring Chance, Twin Peaks, Taylor Bennett, Malcolm London, and others.
Chance has been quite vocal recently when it comes to getting to the polls. He has been offering voter registration on his tour. He teamed up with civil rights group National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) in order to offer audiences voting registration forms on the tour.
He has also been no stranger to expressing his perspective on political issues either, whilst promoting social activism Chance recently discussed celebrities' "responsibility" for calling out the justice system. The rapper also spoke out against police violence after the shooting of Philando Castile, "These guys murdered this man with his 4 year old daughter in the backseat? Is there any situation where police get arrested? Or convicted?" "If you're a Judge, or a politician or a fellow officer with a Conscience, what does it tell you to do? As a human being what do you feel?" "As a man, you can always do/say something."
After the first debate, he tweeted, "Dear God, the words law & order shouldn't strike so much fear in my heart as a law abiding citizen but I am so damn scared of Donald Trump."
