Shaquille O’Neal, 48, former NBA player, revealed on his podcast “The Big Podcast with Shaq” that this was the first election he voted in.
I voted for the first time, and it feels good.
His co-host, John Kincade, says that he was surprised O’Neal had never voted in an election before. This election, he submitted his vote via absentee ballot. O’Neal explained the reasoning behind his initiative to get out and vote.
You know I always like being honest on my podcast. I’ve never voted before, America. But now I’m doing all these voting campaigns, and you know one thing I never like to do is be a hypocrite.
O’Neal admitted that he still had some confusion about exactly how the electoral college and voting in America works but was educating himself to get a deeper understanding.
