With Election Day 2020 mere hours away, we have one singular message to all our readers: For the love of all that is Holy, VOTE!
We’re not alone in that feeling, either. A host of celebrities, politicians, influencers and even private companies have encouraged the American public to do the same. As an overture to election day, we’ve put together this round-up of some of our favorite get out the vote videos. Watch and get motivated: it’s the civic duty of every American.
From the giggles to the weepy, these videos excite viewers to share their voices in democracy. For more information on voting, visit our Vote Center on our sister site LGBTQ Nation.
The stars of HBO’s We’re Here—Shangela, Bob the Drag Queen & Eureka O’Hara—star in this mini-video encouraging queer Americans to get to the polls. The trio lead drag kings and queens from all 50 states in reminding watchers that queer people still face enormous discrimination, and even violence. To defend ourselves, we must vote.
