Julia Louis-Dreyfus already urged millennials to vote this week in a new video for NextGen Climate. Now days ahead of Election Day, “Veep’s” Selina Meyer has some solid advice for voters in a new 30-second clip.
“Hi, former President Selina Meyer here with a message for millennial voters,” says Louis-Dreyfus in character. “Apparently the reason I lost the election was that young people didn’t turn out to vote.”
She’s then interrupted by Tony Hale as his character Gary Walsh who reminds her that it was “old people” who didn’t come out to vote because “it was cold on Election Day.”
“Well, that’s true,” she replies, and continues, “So the two reasons I lost: weather, which we can’t control, and millennial apathy, which you can. When you don’t vote you’re giving your power to someone else. Someone probably less informed and more motivated. So please vote.”
The video was created by HBO in partnership with Rock The Vote to encourage people to vote on November 8.
Watch Selina’s message below.
