RADIO ONE Top 40/Rhythmic KBXX (97.9 THE BOX)/HOUSTON morning host MADD HATTA is on a mission. In partnership with the HIP HOP CAUCUS' RESPECT MY VOTE campaign, RADIO ONE is pushing to register at least 50,000 voters in a single day and KBXX's morning show host, MADD HATTA, is doing his part by staying in place and on the air until he personally has registered 5,000 voters. Going into today, MADD HATTA had registered over 3,200 voters. MADD HATTA is broadcasting live from HOUSTON's SHARPSTOWN MALL.
A host of local celebrities have stopped by to register to vote and lend support to HATTA, including HOUSTON Mayor BILL WHITE.
In a press release, HATTA said that he's putting in this effort because, "We are at a crucial time in history." HATTA went on to add, "We need to be active or see the UNITED STATES fail as a country. It is time for everyone to be proactive in getting the right officials elected to represent the correct causes and part of that is by being a part of the voting process."
