(CNN) — What’s your excuse for not voting today? You moved and forgot to change your address? Can’t get out of work on time? You don’t care about the issues?

Lil Jon is putting you all to shame by jumping on a plane so he can vote in his home district in Atlanta.

He emphatically announced Tuesday in an all-caps message on Facebook that he was on a 6 a.m. flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta because Georgia never sent him an absentee ballot, despite “numerous calls.”

Lil Jon, real name Jonathan Smith, is not the only person to experience issues with Georgia’s voting system. The office of Georgia’s secretary of state confirmed Tuesday that its website has been experiencing intermittent problems on Election Day.

It would be surprising if Lil Jon didn’t manage to rock the vote. As a spokesman for Rock the Vote, he appeared in a get-out-the-vote music video, “Turn Out for What,” a remix of his hit song “Turn Down for What.”

Granted, he can afford a last-minute flight to his polling station, unlike the rest of us.
