Leonardo DiCaprio with John Legend and Selena Gomez narrates the new series titled ‘Whose Vote Counts, Explained’, as they try to increase voter participation in the upcoming US presidential election.
‘Whose Vote Counts, Explained’ is a documentary series with three short-form episodes and is a joint production between Netflix and Vox Media.
Leonardo DiCaprio revealed in a sneak peek from the series via People why all Americans should vote, and how important it is this year. He explains that no one will ever be truly ‘equal’ until everyone takes a stand to vote.
“In 1776, voting was a privilege, almost exclusively for white men with property.” – Dicaprio says in the short clip.
“In the founding constitution, you will not find the right to vote. This right to vote has been a battlefield in American democracy.” – A female voter adds.
“If your vote didn’t matter, why the hell are so many systems and people trying so hard to prevent you from voting?” – A male voter asks.
Leonardo Dicaprio adds: “All of us may have been created equal. But we’ll never actually be equal until we all vote. So don’t wait.”
The documentary series will also include a number of voting resources from several organizations including Michelle Obama’s nonpartisan group ‘When We All Vote’ which she launched in 2018.
Leonardo DiCaprio narrates one of the docu-series’ three short-form episodes, with the others narrated by John Legend and Selena Gomez.
Netflix released the trailer for ‘Whose Vote Counts, Explained’ last week, which also featured Stacey Abrams, Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
‘Whose Vote Counts, Explained’ is available to Netflix subscribers worldwide from Monday, September 28th, 2020.
