CLEVELAND — Stevie Wonder “partied at the polls” Saturday morning to encourage Ohioans to vote early and choose President Barack Obama.
The 22-time Grammy award winner performed at a Party at the Polls rally at the CSU Music Communications Building in Cleveland.
Wonder, who is originally from Michigan, opened the performance by telling the crowd, “Let’s keep it real and very serious.”
“When I hear people talk about being undecided,” he said, “I say, ‘you gotta be out of your mind.’ Realistically, were it not for what the president did, saving the car industry, the people here who make the parts would not have a job.”
Wonder added that voters can make a difference for the country and the world by voting, before kicking off his performance with “Sir Duke.”
The event was held just down the street from the Cuyahoga County early voting site.
Ohio Early Vote centers were open Saturday until 2 p.m. and will be open Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m., and on Monday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
