Bristol Palin couldn’t be bothered to vote in Tuesday’s mid-term election because she’s so busy trying to stay afloat as a contestant on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars — and outspoken politico Meghan McCain is vocally blasting the young mother’s carelessness.

The 20-year-old daughter of former Gov. Sarah Palin, who is in Los Angeles competing on the reality show, told Inside Edition she forgot to send in her “absentee ballot in Alaska. I’m going to be in trouble. Sorry, Mom!”

The comment is getting the side eye from former family friend Meghan, who called Bristol “ridiculous” live on late-night TV this week.

“If you didn’t vote in my family that was like bad news. I ‘ve been voting since I turned 18,” Meghan — the daughter of the man responsible for upchucking The Palin Clan in the first place — told The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno Wednesday.

“I guess it’s only important for Bristol Palin to vote for Dancing With The Stars. I think a lot of women worked really hard to give us the right to vote. Anyone that doesn’t vote is just ridiculous.”
