Everywhere you look, someone or something is telling all US people to vote tomorrow in the midterm elections — and that’s because these elections could have huge consequences.
More LGBTI candidates and women are running than ever before, with people anticipating a blue and/or rainbow wave. Democrats could take back control of the House, and earn some leverage in Congress. States like Massachusetts are voting on propositions dealing with transgender rights.
Today, satirist and performer Randy Rainbow released a more fun way to encourage people to vote — with a Wicked parody!
Known for his musical and political mash-ups, this newest video from Randy Rainbow takes the upseat song What Is This Feeling?, Glinda and Elphaba’s first duet together, and turns it into a plea about voting.
‘What the hell’s up with the country today,’ Rainbow sings. ‘I feel like packing and running away. It’s very scary, and super strange, it makes me weary/How can I change it? I think I found a fix, on November 6, I’ll be voting!’
The video is full of Randy Rainbow’s trademark catchy lyrics and scathing commentary on the Trump administration.
After a bit about press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, he sings: ‘If you want the privilege to whine, don’t just tweet, lament and opine/Put some make-up on and get your ass in line.’
As he also sings in the video, it’s not too late to change the way things are going.
The following states all have same-day voter registration: California, Colorado, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
The midterm elections take place tomorrow (6 November).
