Report says Colin Kaepernick has never registered to vote

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has never registered to vote and made no secret about his decision to not vote in the presidential election. This is according to records obtained by the Sacramento Bee.

Kaepernick became the focus of a political movement after refusing to stand for the national anthem during NFL pregame festivities.

He told reporters why he decided not to vote. "I think it would be hypocritical of me to vote. I said from the beginning I was against oppression, I was against the system of oppression. I'm not going to show support for that system," Kaepernick said.

The records show that he has not registered to vote anywhere in California since reaching the legal voting age in 2005. He also never registered when he was attending college in Nevada. He skipped voting in the 2008 and 2012 elections of the first black president.
