Bristol Palin makes a surprising admission.
"I did not send in my absentee ballots in Alaska," she told INSIDE EDITION after Tuesday night's Dancing with the Stars show.
That's right, the daughter of one of the most prominent political figures of the day didn't vote in Tuesday's big election.
But she did weigh in on whether she'd want her mom to run for President in 2012.
"Of course I do. I know that she's great and she'd be great for our country," said the 20-year-old.
Meanwhile there was another shocking elimination on the show.
Former NBA star Rick Fox got the boot despite getting his highest scores from the judges, while low scorer Bristol keeps dancing!
"I'm still processing it. It's really abrupt," said Fox. "You don't sign up without being told America gets a voice in this."
Even Bristol was stunned, saying, "I was so shocked...just couldn't believe it that we had gotten through another week."
The women on The View are wondering if politics are behind Bristol's staying power.
"I think a lot of people respect Bristol Palin because you can see the improvement," said Sherri Shepherd.
Barbara Walters said, "I think it also helps that many of the Tea Party people are voting her in."
