COLUMBIA, SC – We know everyone one has busy schedules but hopefully you made time to vote.

As an American we all have the right to vote as long as you are a U.S. citizen, have not committed a felony and are 21-years-old.

Wait a second; we thought the voting age is 18?

Well, it is. Obviously!

But don’t ask South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier to confirm that for you.

When asked whether he’d allow his players extra time to vote on Tuesday, Spurrier replied, “Our players that are 21.”

Someone give him the 26th amendment to read please!

Wonder if Spurrier voted for President Obama; he too seems to get numbers wrong.

Remember when Obama said, “Over the last 15 months we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states; I think one left to go.”
