Singer Meat Loaf recently came out in support of Mitt Romney, going as far as to sing “America the Beautiful” with the presidential candidate. However, The Huffington Post reports that the musician may have a problem casting his vote for the man he endorsed.
While the “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” singer would love for Americans to cast their vote for Mitt Romney, Meat Loaf may have trouble doing the same. According to The Smoking Gun, Loaf forgot to register in his home state of Texas. If the musician wanted to vote for the GOP candidate, then he needed to complete the registration process by October 9.
Meat Loaf, who is also known as Michael Lee Aday, has reportedly requested a write-in ballot from the state of California. However, Aday sold his home in Los Angeles nearly 17 months ago, which may prove to be a problem for the popular singer. Since law requires voters to be California residents, it would appear that Aday has hit a serious roadblock.
According to the New York Daily News, Meat Loaf has been working hard to get voters to put their faith in Mitt Romney. During a campaign rally in Defiance, Ohio on Thursday night, the singer encouraged those in attendance to get into political arguments with their friends and family.
“I know there’s one thing that you’ve been taught your whole life is that you never argue politics or religion with your friends,” Aday explained. “But 2012 is completely different. I have been arguing for Mitt Romney for a year.”
Meat Loaf then explained how he had convinced a handful of Democrats to switch their vote from Obama to Romney, allowing the singer to craft a joke around one of his hit singles.
“I made three phone calls today to Democrats in California and I got two of them to switch to Romney. So two out of three ain’t bad!” Aday quipped.
Do you think Meat Loaf should continue to support Mitt Romney if he’s not eligible to vote?
