Avengers Assemble–To Get Out The Vote

The presidential election is seven weeks away, and Joss Whedon is getting some friends together to convince people to register to vote.

A new website called Save the Day gives people a chance to know how to register in their local areas. According to the site, the purpose is to tell people “voting is a necessary and heroic act.” Also, it says “We are committed to fighting the apathy, cynicism, and honest confusion that keeps citizens from using their vote. And to reminding an increasingly out-of-touch and compromised set of representatives that they are answerable to the people they were hired to serve.”

There’s even a video featuring some very familiar faces, including Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Keegan Micheal Key, Scarlett Johansson, Nathan Fillion and Don Cheadle.

They don’t mention Trump and Clinton by name, but their concerns about the election and what could happen are pretty clear.

Oh, and Joss Whedon is back on Twitter, under @Joss. His first tweet back was to promote the video.
