Selena Gomez & Zac Efron Go Political (VIDEO)

Selena Gomez and Zac Efron really want you to have a voice — urging people to vote in this new video for Vote 4 Stuff.

Selena Gomez and Zac Efron are joining the likes of other stars who are promoting the 2012 general election. They recently filmed segments for a campaign called Vote 4 Stuff, in which they talk about what matters to themselves this year. However, the video is a more comical take on the serious topic, which they then make sure to point out the real side of the issues.

Selena and Zac both have fun answers and a serious one for when the topic shifts. However, the real purpose was for them to ask you to join this election, vote and share what matters the most to you for a future video for this campaign. As for what Zac and Selena both had to say about what matters to them, you can watch their video down below.

“Vote 4 Stuff” PSA

I am glad that they are promoting the need of voices to be heard, but it is also a sensitive topic for many. I am not sure how anyone can promote the election without coming across on one side. So it is sort of touchy subject to talk about at the least. However, I do think we can all agree that it is nice to see that Selena Gomez and Zac Efron want their generation to vote. That is something that helps to make our elections even greater than some.

Do you think celebrities should become involved in politics? Yes and no. It is a very hostile environment that is not forgiving, but I do think they have a right for their voices to be heard. As for joining voting campaigns like this one, I don’t see anything wrong with them per se. I just find it a very sticky subject for many and it doesn’t always go as smooth as some want. It can drum up a lot of bad feelings and it is hard enough for celebrities to stay neutral as it is without politics. So I feel like it could be a needless risk for some.

Selena Gomez are trying to get younger people, like me, I guess, to vote. I don't care if stars want me to vote, so will this work?
