Get Out The Vote** a.k.a. Register the Dead.

**Pet Peeve Warning - What form or version of English is this phrase? In my world, this phrase is nonsense. Did they mean, "Get out TO vote"? Every time I hear this phrase it makes me want to slap someone. I feel this way when I hear someone use "ax" in place of "ask", "skreet" in place of "street", as well.

Pet peeves here as well. Another bothersome pronunciation:

srimp instead of shrimp

"What form or version of English is this phrase? "

I think it's an ebonic derivative of "Get out the Bushes."
