Voting Movie Thursday
There’s lots of great folks and organizations out there making it easy for you to vote – Rock the Vote has an easy online registration application for you (not to mention some groovy pro-voting t-shirts), and the folks at Mobilize the Vote 2008 will entertain you with a video that you can share and pass along to friends before (or after) you register via their site. And hey, they have some cool voting merchandise as well.
Indeed, there’s lots of interesting videos out there right now encouraging people to get on out there and vote. And thus may today be known as Voting Movie Thursday.
Mobilize the Vote has done a new video that reminds the 45 million of-age Millennials that their voices count in this election:
If you’re more into comedic takes on voting, Sarah Silverman’s “The Great Schlep” is a targeted outreach to young Democratic Jews, just in time for the High Holidays. (Note: this video may not be appropriate for the workplace.)
No response from Republican celebs yet, but perhaps Shannen Doherty will do an answer video reaching out to the 90210 zip code…
But do take time out from all the TV-and-movie-watching to register to vote. Because, you know, voting is a good thing.
And if you have your own favorite voting video, feel free to share it. We like movies.
