Offset joins the list of celebrities showing up to the polls, meeting fans and handing out food in order to encourage voter turnout.

On Tuesday, the Migos rapper partnered with the Lincoln Project to provide free food to voters as they waited in long lines to cast their ballots.

The 28-year-old rapper showed up at three polling locations in Gwinnett and Fulton counties. The food was provided by the courtesy of Slutty Vegan and Big Dave’s Cheesesteak.

Offset posted a video of himself after voting on to his Instagram Live. In the video, the rapper shows off his “I Voted” sticker and encourages fans to come out to the polls.

“What’s up? It’s your boy Offset and I voted today,” the rapper said in the video obtained by another media outlet. “Yes sir, I voted today. I’m pulling up to Fickett Elementary and William Walker Rec Center with Slutty Vegan and Big Dave’s Cheesesteaks to celebrate Election Day.”

This is not the first time Offset has used his platform to encourage voter turnout. In late October, Offset participated in a public service announcement where he explains how he was previously misled to believe he no longer had the right to vote after being convicted of a felony at the age of 17.

“It still could be 10 times better, but you’ve gotta vote. That’s what changes the rules, change the laws.” Offset says in the closing of the video, further explaining the purpose of voting. “I really felt good voting, because I was told I couldn’t, or I was told I wouldn’t be able to clean up or get away from my past and look where I’m at now. I voted and I was able to be a part of where I live which is at home here in America. My voice matters.”
