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:
One of the (many) odd conceits of celebrityhood is the notion that the ability to sing or tell jokes or portray other characters somehow qualifies one to tell others how to vote. Not sure electricians or truckers or sales associates feel that way about themselves.

People were relieved by Sajak’s “refreshing” response:
It is so refreshing. Gives me hope that not all are crazy! Thanks, Pat.

You mean to tell me that adults who play dress-up and make believe for a living aren't the experts we need to solve the nation's complex problems?

Agreed. A celebrity is allowed to have an opinion, but that doesn't automatically mean theirs has any more weight than any other person's.

Just when we thought we couldn’t love you any more than we already did!
