Kirsten Dunst went undercover this week to encourage young people to vote.
The 26-year-old actress cast an early vote in California on Monday and filmed the event for WhyTuesday.org, an organization founded in 2005 to find solutions to increase voter turnout and participation in elections.
“What matters is that you vote for on Tuesday, November 4th,” said Dunst. “It’s very important to voice how you feel and vote for you who feel is best for the job. Today, America ranks near the bottom of all countries in voter turn-out. We can turn that on.”
The video marks the second PSA the actress has made for WhyTuesday. She also featured in a mock interview – with her face blanked out and voice altered – imploring young people to get out and vote.
“I get paid to show my face and I’ve been in a lot of movies,” she says in the tongue-in-cheek video. “If you saw my face you would know what they are, but that doesn’t matter. …What matters is that you vote on Tuesday, Nov. 4.”
Both videos can be viewed at the WhyTuesday website.
