( Contactmusic ) - Rap star FATMAN SCOOP is encouraging U.S. citizens to vote - by offering registered voters the chance to appear on his online TV show MAN AND WIFE. The reality series, which sees the star and his partner Shanda discuss relationship issues, has launched its own drive to promote voting among viewers - even suggesting couples should try a unique way of doing their bit for their country in the race for the next U.S. president. Shanda tells AllHipHop.com, "We have found a way to make registering to vote fun and sexy. Each time you have sex with your partner, Scoop and I challenge you to convince someone to go register to vote." Viewers are then asked to email the couple after registering, and the contestant with the most entries following the election on 4 November (08) will appear in a full episode of Man And Wife. Shanda adds, "We thought it (would) be an excellent idea to start now, because many people aren't registered. We figure, (if) we start the 'campaign' to register now, it would definitely allow for more voters on election day making their votes count!" The couple insist they will not be endorsing any political candidates in the running for the role of U.S. president.
