Mid-term elections are just one week away and Elle Varner is the latest celebrity to lend her voice to the voting cause. Not since 2008 have we seen such enthusiasm for people to get out to the polls, but in case you still don’t understand what’s at stake or how you can make a difference, Varner has a message for you.

As part of InteractiveOne’s #RepresentTheVote initiative, we asked the singer why voting is so important for her and why it’s crucial for Black women in general. Check out the video above to hear what she had to say about the opportunity before us.
