Captain Scott Kelly Launches New Digital Ad Campaign Encouraging Arizonans to Make a Plan to Vote Early

Today, the DNC is launching a new digital ad campaign featuring retired astronaut Captain Scott Kelly encouraging Arizonans to make a plan to vote early this year.

In a 30-second direct-to-camera video, Kelly educates Arizona voters on their multiple convenient and easy options to vote early this year, including voting early in person as well as returning their requested ballot by mail, in person, or at an official drop box.

“Ten years ago, I was living in space during a critical election year. You might guess that since I was orbiting the Earth, I wouldn’t have been able to vote. Well, you’d be wrong. In fact, I made my plan and voted from space,” says Kelly in the ad. “So there’s no excuse for you this election. Arizonans have many easy and convenient options to vote early this year, by mail or early in person.”

The new ad campaign will reach individuals who are likely to be early voters through digital platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Hulu, and YouTube across Arizona.

The spot will direct Arizona voters to — the Democrats’ voter participation website — to learn to learn about their different options to cast their ballot and make a plan to vote today.

The DNC and Biden campaign recently rolled out new features on that help voters easily request and return their ballot by mail, as well as learn important information about the voting process in their state as they make their plan to vote. The site is also completely accessible in Spanish at
