Rapper/actor Bow Wow has joined a campaign to urge young people across the U.S. to vote in the upcoming presidential elections.
The star has teamed up with the Walk Across America initiative to encourage voters to register and participate in the nationwide poll, which takes place in November (08).
Bow Wow will travel to a string of cities across the country, both on foot and by bus, to visit local radio stations, colleges and universities to assist with the voter registration process.
The 21-year-old will begin his trek in Atlanta, Georgia, on 1 October (08) and finish up in Hartford, Connecticut on 15 October (08).
Bow Wow insists that it is crucial that young people cast their votes in the election.
He tells AllHipHop.com, "It's important for the youth to participate because we're tomorrow's leaders.
"We need to make sure that our voices are heard and have a say in the decisions that will affect our lives and our country for years to come."
Bow Wow is to cement his place as a community activist by launching his own non-profit organisation, the Follow The Leader Foundation, later this year (08).
