The 20-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, who campaigned for candidates across the nation in this election, confessed to "Inside Edition" after Tuesday night's "Dancing with the Stars" result show that she forgot to send in her absentee ballot.

"I did not send in my absentee ballot in Alaska," she said. I'm going to be in trouble. Sorry, Mom!"

While appearing on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" Wednesday, McCain slammed Palin and said it was "ridiculous" of her to not vote.

"I think a lot of women worked really hard to give us the right to vote, and I think it's anyone who doesn't vote is just ridiculous," she said of Palin.

"I guess it's only important for Bristol Palin to vote for 'Dancing with the Stars," McCain said.
