Yesterday (November 2), people across the country flexed their political power by voting in the 2010 elections. Two years ago the hip-hop community came out in force to help usher in the first African-American President into the White House. While Barack Obama may have another two years before going for a second term that doesn’t mean casting your ballot is less important.

In an effort to rally our readers to hit the polls, XXL sent out a tweet to our Twitter followers reminding them to vote. As further incentive, we asked readers to TwitPic themselves voting for a potential photo gallery on the site. So, as promised, here are a few of your peers rocking the vote.
