It's never been more important to make your voice heard. This election, cast a ballot.
Joss Whedon assembled (most of) the Avengers — plus other super-famous people who sometimes play super-people — for a very important message about the upcoming election.
Yet another celebrity video on why you should vote. Only this time they're adding even more famous people because voting is kinda really super important. (via YouTube/SaveTheDay.Vote & storyful)Posted by Upworthy on Thursday, September 22, 2016
They need our help to save the day, and there's one thing each of us can do on Nov. 8, 2016, to make that happen: Vote.
Starring the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Neil Patrick Harris, Jesse Williams, and many, many more, the video serves as a powerful reminder that we — regular people — hold the power to change the world for the better.
Whether you're a high-profile movie star, an accountant, a police officer, or a sales clerk, we all get one vote; and those votes all matter, especially in this election.
Polls show a teeth-grindingly tight race between two candidates with vastly different world-views this year. This one is going to come down to the wire, and you (yes, you) absolutely matter in helping to determine not just the future of the U.S., but a broader impact on the world.
Just 57.5% of eligible voters cast a ballot in the 2012 presidential election. That's more than 100 million people who stayed home.
The election was determined by fewer than five million votes. Had just a fraction of those eligible voters made their way out to their polling place, they could have tipped the election.
Regardless which candidate you feel best represents your interests, it's important that you (yes, you) vote. A democracy works best when all are informed participants.
One thing is clear: Both sides are not the same. That's not to say one side is better than another, but they are different in key ways. Apathy is not an option.
Because this isn't about any one individual. This is about you, your family, your community, your country, and your world. This is about shaping the future of humanity.
And while you may not have the superpowers of the Hulk, the riches of Iron Man, or the special abilities of other characters of the Marvel universe, you have something even more powerful: your vote. You can save the day.
