TMZ.com reports that T.I. found a "loophole" in the voting law that allowed him to cast his vote as a convicted felon yesterday.

But T.I. would have already voted if he was a regular reader of SR.com! I pointed out here that even convicted felons can vote as long as they aren't on probation or on parole.

For a convicted felon, T.I. is pretty damn good at reading the fine print of the law -- 'cause the rapper found a way to VOTE after all!

T.I. -- who pleaded guilty to weapons charges last year -- found a loophole in the Georgia law book, which allows a convicted felon the right to vote IF they're not currently serving probation or a prison sentence.

Because T.I. isn't expected to be sentenced until next year, dude still can exercise his civic duty.

And before authorities could change their mind, T.I. hit a polling place in Atlanta to lock in his ballot ... cause like he says, in America -- you can have whatever you like.

    I think that was planned..he already knew he could vote he just wanted the publicity for his alabum..think about it, he's doing interviews why not throw in him 'finding out' he could vote..either way i'm happy he exercised that right, but he could keep it real

    I'm glad he can vote. I don't think it is right for a convicted felons voting privileges to be taken away if they have paid their 'dues' to society. I think the 'loop hole' should not be considered a loop hole and that is how it should be in every state.

    I think it's in the majority of the states..however after this election expect it to change

    i know OHIO has this loophole, I think FL does too. Charles Fulton, or whatever the guy that played on ROCK the tv series name is a couple years ago held a campaign fighting for this cause. He won in a couple states but I can't off the top of my head remember them all.
