Tyler Perry Flies to Georgia to Vote in Person After Absentee Ballot Fails to Arrive

My1sttoday: Tyler Perry flies to Georgia to vote in person after absentee ballot fails to arrive, so he could vote in the state’s Senate runoff elections.

Perry tweeted that the absentee ballot he requested early last month never arrived despite a shipping confirmation.

Voting rights advocate Stacey Abrams, a former Democratic gubernatorial candidate, responded and encouraged him to vote in person if able.

“Just tell the person at the check-in table that you wish to cancel your ballot & vote in person,” Abrams wrote.

Hours later, Perry responded and said he decided to fly home.

“I will be there early in the morning. Too important to miss. Too important to miss!” he tweeted.

He later shared a video of himself leaving his in-person poll location, donning his new voting sticker.

Tyler Perry is among several Hollywood stars making a final push to get voters in the Peach State to the polls heading into Tuesday’s runoffs.
