David Ledbetter, 17, used the freakout over Popeyes new sandwich as an opportunity to register people to vote.

The North Carolina teen cannot vote, but he saw it as a chance to bring young people into politics.

From WCNC:

“I decided to register people to vote after I saw there was a lack of young people politically involved,” Ledbetter said.

On Saturday, the Meyers Park rising senior said he proudly registered 16 people to vote.

“I believe that it is our duty to vote as American citizens and it would be wrong not to exercise our political voice,” Ledbetter said.

Popeyes all over the country have faced long lines as people scramble to try their new chicken sandwich. Some stores have run out of the new sought out delicacy.

Ledbetter does not have many pictures on his Instagram account, but the few shows him volunteering and trying to better his community.

Good on Ledbetter for taking advantage of the long Popeyes lines!
