Hollywood Says Don’t Vote

With the count­down to prob­a­bly one of the biggest choices Amer­i­cans are going face in the years to come, the Pres­i­den­tial Elec­tions will be here in no time. In an effort to get the word out for peo­ple to vote for their future, Declare Your­self1 part­nered up with some of Hollywood’s stars to get the mes­sage across. In this case, they did well using “reverse psy­chol­ogy”:

A cou­ple of bits that stood out for me are the ones from Jonah Hill and Sarah Sil­ver­man. Com­edy is com­edy. It’s just bound to get laughs but at the same time, tell the truth. “Truth in jest” right?

Any­ways, GO VOTE! Not only does it give your thoughts more weight when debat­ing things rang­ing from the Econ­omy to Global Warm­ing, but it also allows you to say “YES” when asked in the mid­dle of the debate, “did you vote?”

A cou­ple of ways to reg­is­ter online:

Voter reg­is­tra­tion dead­lines begin this upcom­ing Sat­ur­day, Octo­ber 4th. Go do it now before its too late. It’ll only take a cou­ple of min­utes to reg­is­ter. Remem­ber, don’t com­plain if you can’t even exer­cise your right to vote. I hope that helps.

Update
Only a cou­ple more days till Novem­ber 4th, Declare Your­self pro­duced part 2 of the campaign:
