Hamilton Star Leslie Odom, Jr. Tells PA Voters to “Sign, Seal And Deliver” Their Mail Ballot in New Radio Ad
October 22, 2020
Spot utilizes Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” to remind Voters Seal Their Ballot in Secrecy Envelope
Actor and Musician Leslie Odom, Jr. and the Democratic National Committee today are releasing a new radio ad in Pennsylvania, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” urging Keystone State voters to make their plan to vote — and ensure they are using both the smaller secrecy envelope and larger return envelope if voting by mail.
Over the iconic Stevie Wonder hit “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” the Hamilton star sings step-by-step instructions on how to properly fill out a mail-in ballot if they so choose, including sealing one’s ballot in both the smaller secrecy envelope and the larger return envelope, signing the declaration on the back of the return envelope, and delivering it to a mailbox, county elections office, or specially-marked, official ballot dropbox by November 3. The ad also directs voters to go to IWillVote.com/PA to make their plan to vote.
“Pennsylvanians can make their voices heard by voting in this election,” said Leslie Odom, Jr. “Every Pennsylvanian needs to make their plan to vote and follow through on it. And if you are voting by mail, make sure the ballot is placed in the secrecy envelope, signed, sealed and delivered.”
The ad begins playing this week on radio and digital radio outlets, including Pandora.
The radio ad is the latest step taken by the DNC, Biden for President Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Democratic Party, and other groups to educate voters about how to easily return their vote-by-mail ballot and ensure their vote is counted. Throughout the mail ballot voting period, the DNC has released advertisements that educate voters on how to properly turn in mail ballots, including a broadcast TV ad in the Philadelphia market, and a digital ad featuring Wanda Sykes. The education campaign has also included regular voter education events, direct voter outreach, additional digital ads and a robust social media campaign featuring photos and videos of elected officials and local leaders completing the steps to return their mail ballots.
Additionally, The DNC and Biden campaign recently rolled out new features on IWillVote.com 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 VoyaVotar.com.
