After last night’s presidential debate, Frank Ocean wants to make sure everyone heads to the polls to vote on Election Day, Nov. 3.

On Tuesday, the Blonded singer/songwriter took to Instagram to announce his new voter registration website.

“Debates are on. It all feels fake. The problem’s that it’s not,” Ocean wrote via his Instagram Story. “Donald [Trump] is president and might not leave the White House even if he loses the race, so some say.”

Frank continued, “Pls vote. Watching him dragged out will be way more entertaining than these debates. If you’re not registered, swipe up to BLONDED.CO, the form just takes two minutes to fill out. Goodnight.”

The website offers a voter registration form and provides users with links to check their registration status, get election reminders, and check the early voting calendar. It also includes information on voting by mail and restoring voter registration for convicted felons.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Frank Ocean encourage his fans to use their voice at the polls. During the 2018 midterm elections, the Grammy-winning artist offered free merchandise to fans who voted. The shirts featured “42%” to represent the number of Americans who were non-voters at the time.  

Tuesday night was the first presidential debate between Trump and former vice president Joe Biden. Next up, Kamala Harris and Mike Pence will take the stage on Oct. 7 for the first vice-presidential debate. Trump and Biden will debate again on Oct. 15 and once more on Oct. 22.
