Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt Really Want You to Vote

With just three days before the midterm elections, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are here to remind you to vote. In a four-minute-long PSA from Now This released Friday, the actors take turns explaining why midterms are just as important as presidential-term elections: “The House of Representatives, the Senate, to dozens of governors’ races,” Pitt says.

“So much is at stake, from gun-safety laws to immigration policy, clean water, and air,” DiCaprio says—an issue particularly dear to the premier Jane Goodall fanboy—“and whether or not millions of people have access to health care.” The two urge viewers to go vote, acknowledging the already record-breaking early voting turnout; by the end of October, more than 24 million had already submitted early absentee ballots, compared with nearly 13 million in 2014. (This year’s early votes also actually surpass the total voter turnout during the previous midterm elections, according to NBC.)
