Sarah Silverman, Chelsea Handler, Others, Join Naked Video For Voting

Chelsea Handler is already known for getting naked on social media.

Sarah Silverman From PSA

Comedians Sarah Silverman and Chelsea Handler have stripped off their clothes and joined a public service announcement video to encourage voting. Handler is used to this as she is frequently naked in her social media posts.

They did this because 16 states have so called “naked ballot” laws. These laws require that mail in voted be placed in separate envelopes to maintain voter privacy. As such, people must place their ballot in an unnamed envelope which goes inside of another envelope with their name and information so that the states can record that they voted. Many see this as confusing and an attempt to discount many votes by mail because the Republicans believe that these will come overwhelmingly from Democratic voters. Republicans counter that this is needed to prevent possible fraud.


To be fair here, the celebrities in the video are certainly no fans of Donald Trump. Chelsea Handler and Sarah Silverman were joined by stars like Chris Rock, Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat and Amy Schumer.

The PSA comes from the organization RepresentUs, which states that it promotes voting rights. Its co-founder and CEO Josh Silver said in a statement. “The fact is that if you use the wrong pen color or don’t assemble your mail-in ballot correctly, your vote may not count. This is not a partisan issue; it affects all people planning to vote by mail.”

Silver thanked the participating celebrities saying, “We’re grateful to this committed and talented group for making an eye-catching video so that everyone understands what they need to do to ensure their vote is counted.”

In the video Silverman tells viewers, “If you don’t do exactly what I tell you, your ballot could be thrown out.”

Sarah Silverman recently tweeted, “Marriage equality is under attack & Roe is likely right behind it. We all know how you feel Mr. Vice President. That “gay” is sickness & “woman” is threat. (To Karen Pence) Karen, thank you for chaperoning so we can have this debate”

Meanwhile Chelsea Handler puts the blame on the current Covid-19 crisis on President Trump calling it the “Trump Virus.” She tweeted, “123 at Capital test positive for covid as Trump spreads the Trump virus.”

You can see Handler’s new comedy special on HBOmax on October 22:
