“We call BS.”

Glam Up The Midterms! 

Billy Eichner, Funny Or Die, and your favorite hometown heroes are joining forces for one singular purpose: getting you to turn up and vote in the midterm elections. Let’s face it. Young people have never been excited about midterm elections. Only 12% of youth voters turned out in 2014. That’s embarrassing, America. So, Billy and his friends are going to do what they do best. They are going to make the midterm elections an event that you cannot miss. They will Glam Up The Midterms through in-district events, videos, stunts, rallies, and get-out-the-vote actions all over the country. Join the campaign at GlamUpTheMidterms.com to register to vote and sign-up to receive action alerts.
