One thing I can appreciate more than anything is honesty - and the fact that Shaquille O'Neal flat out said YUP. I just voted for the first time is not only surprising but refreshing to hear!
At 48 years old, he's been heavily involved in voting campaigns this year and he didn't want to be a hypocrite... so he exercised his right to vote and mailed in his absentee ballot (oh, and if you still don't believe him - he described the process of filling it out LOL)!
Regardless of which side you're on politically, or who you're voting for - it's important that you VOTE if you're able to! :)
