Steve Carell isn’t mad that you might not vote in November — he’s just disappointed. “You vote because you care, and people should care,” he explains in the following PSA for Our Time, a nonprofit dedicated to getting young Americans to fill out ballots. “You should care. What’s wrong with you? Why don’t you care?”
He’s got a point! After all, as Carell explains, “It’s easy to register to vote” — especially today, as it’s National Voter Registration Day. “There’s no excuse,” he continues in the video. “You don’t have any excuse. If you can get online, you can vote. And if you can’t get online… well, there probably is no helping you at this point.”
The former star of The Office also promises to personally smack anyone who doesn’t vote — but don’t let that goad you into staying home. (Though getting your ears boxed by Michael Scott would make a great story.) Watch his message below, then pass it on… and don’t forget to make sure you’re registered.
