Amy Sloper writes, "This is a really timely (while still feeling dated) voting PSA about the importance of tellin' the world your opinion by voting."
It features an original theme song performed by Melissa Manchester with great lyrics, including:
"Sooner or later the world moves in, it gives you a shove or a kick in the shin, asking brother who the hell are you? ...
