Hollywood Pushes Voting in Last-Minute Midterm Effort Days After Fellow Celeb Slammed Their Political Talk


Many Hollywood celebrities have not shied from urging people to vote, especially for the Democratic Party. Now, with people casting their ballots in the 2018 midterm elections, they’ve put out their last message.

The featured stars in the latest “Tuesdays Are For Voting” video include actress Sarah Jessica Parker, actress Lena Dunham, actor Ed Harris, and multiple others.

The star-filled video shows the celebrities saying that “it’s not just any Tuesday” and urging people to “go vote.

“I’m out there voting,” actor Henry Winkler said. “What about you?”

Actor Thomas Middleditch noted that he’d like to vote, but “I can’t. I’m Canadian.”

“Go. Now. Vote.” Harris said.

Watch the video below:

As IJR previously reported, Parker donated big money to Democratic Texas Senate candidate Rep. Beto O’Rourke as he battles to take over Republican incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz’s seat.

The actress contributed $2,700 to O’Rourke’s campaign. However, Cruz is currently ahead by a polling average of 6.8 points, according to RealClearPolitics.

Hollywood stands up against Hollywood

Game show host Pat Sajak took a jab at the celebrities’ efforts to get people to vote:

People were relieved by Sajak’s “refreshing” response:

With the midterms underway as Americans across the U.S. vote for hopefuls running for Senate, House of Representatives, and state governorships, Democrats are hoping to regain control of the House, while Republicans hope to keep control of the Senate.
