We admit that some of us were not big Leo DiCaprio fans, but now that he has created this Voting PSA for declareyourself.com, we have to give him points. Featuring such celebs as Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Tobey Maguire, Dustin Hoffman and Ashton Kuchter, the online video is aimed at younger voters in an effort to get them to register, with the deadline being this week in some states. Supposedly shot in his backyard in one day, it has already had over 40,000 views. Our kudos to the politically correct actor.
It is so easy to register to vote now that we at Gear Live want to encourage you to do so if you have not already. We admit we have been apathetic in the past, but to not vote means you will not be heard. If you are 18 or older, head over to Declare Yourself to register online (at least 30 days before Nov. 4,) request an absentee ballot, or find specific election locations for your area. There are links to candidates, stands, and issues. Launched in 2003, the site is perfect for finding answers, no matter what the questions. So vote, tell your friends to, and be grateful that we live in a country where we can choose our leaders, rather than having them thrust upon us.
