In recent weeks, celebrities have used their platforms to encourage people to vote, from Kendall Jenner to Meghan Markle.
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio, who prefers to stay out of the spotlight between film projects, has lent his star power to a new voting PSA – telling people ‘don’t wait’.
DiCaprio provided the voiceover for an episode of the Netflix and Vox Media series whose vote counts, explained.
Shared exclusively by People, the video saw DiCaprio break down the voting history: “In 1775, voting was a privilege almost exclusively for white males with property.
“We were all created equal, but we will never be equal until we all vote,” he continued. “So don’t wait.”
Two other voters were also featured in the video, with one woman saying voting “has been a battleground in American democracy” while another asked, “If your vote didn’t matter, why the hell? so many systems and prevents you from voting? “
The series, which is currently airing on Netflix, also features Selena Gomez and John Legend talking about the history and importance of voting.
Democratic and Republican politicians are also included, with Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Stacey Abrams, and Republicans Arnold Schwarzenegger and John Kasich.
In the run-up to the November election, many stars used their millions of social media platforms to encourage people to vote alongside organizations such as HeadCount and Vote Save America.
Election day in the United States will take place on November 3, although many are urging people to vote earlier in the mail-in ballots, a move that has been a matter of contention for President Donald Trump. Trump and his Vice President Mike Pence face Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
