NEW YORK // FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10TH 2008 » Rapper Bow Wow is trying to get as many people as possible to register to vote (if they’re still able to) and once registered and able, to actually go out and vote at the polls this November. He and singer Michelle Williams participated in a walk on New York City yesterday afternoon.

“I used to think going to the mall and hollering at girls (was) more important,” Bow Wow told reporters. “But in reality, we are in a different time now. My focus now is to take it a step further to make a change and vote.”

Bow Wow, who recently appeared on HBO’s Entourage, launched this “Walk Across America” campaign last Wednesday, and the goal of the movement was to hit as many major cities as possible within 15 days: Philadelphia; New York; Washington; Baltimore; Boston; Nashville, TN; Hartford, CT; Mobile, AL; Richmond, VA; and Columbia, SC.
