With nine days left before the presidential election, actor Matt Damon is trying to keep Americans fired up and eager to vote.
Damon is participating in the Florida VoteFest '08 Sunday and Monday, a statewide initiative to encourage people to vote early.
"I took time off from acting until the end of the year to be with my family and enjoy our new daughter," Damon told PEOPLE at a jam-packed Barack Obama rally Sunday in West Palm Beach, Fla. "But it is very important for me to do what I can to help the Obama campaign so people will go out and vote. We need change in this country and now is the time to be sure that happens."
