We interrupt our regular programming to deliver your Shameless reminder to vote, plus a fresh votin’ video off of the YouTubes.

As my recently-transplanted-Canadian-friend-now-living-in-the-States-and-able-to-vote said:

Please go vote tomorrow. It doesn’t take much of your time and your employer is required to let you have the time needed to go vote. It’s very very simple. You can find where your voting location is on your computer or even on your phone so there’s no excuse about not knowing where to go. And saying “I dislike politics so I’m protesting by not voting” isn’t true. That’s not a protest, that’s laziness. If you refuse to vote on behalf of yourself, go vote on behalf of the billions of people in the world who desperately wish that they could have a voice in the US presidential elections. Otherwise it’s like you were handed a winning lottery ticket and decided you were too lazy to go cash it in. Take a few minutes to watch the video below. (Yes, I know the freeze frame has Tom Cruise and so you’re like “what the hell?”. Watch it anyway.)

And the video:
