Mike Evans wrote on Instagram he didn't vote in election
When Bucs receiver Mike Evans sat on a bench on the sidelines at Raymond James Stadium during the national anthem of Sunday's game in protest of Donald Trump being elected as president last week, one unanswered question remained: Did he vote in the election himself?
On Tuesday, as the nation waited for election results between Trump and Hillary Clinton, fellow Bucs receiver Louis Murphy posted a question on Instagram: "Who voted? Who didn't?" and then a comment: "Did you #vote?" Evans, using his official account that has 277,000 followers, posted a comment saying "No" in response.
Evans is registered to vote in his hometown of Galveston, Texas, where voter registration records show him with an active registration and no listed party affiliation. He was not asked by reporters Sunday night whether he voted as he explained his protest of Trump.
Here's our story from Monday's Times on Evans' decision to sit during the anthem, with his comments from the locker room after the game.
