Jessica Alba Encourages Youth Voters To 'Unite' Ahead Of Voter Registration Deadlines (VIDEO)

Actress Jessica Alba is encouraging youth voters to "unite" and "make a difference" in a new video for Our Time.

"The more that we get together and unite as young people, and stand up for our rights and say that we matter and say that our voices need to be heard, then we're going to actually make a difference and make a change, and that can happen in Washington," Alba says.

The video comes as more than 22 states approach voter registration deadlines in the next 5 days. Other celebrities including Larry David, Nas and the cast of Workaholics have partnered with Our Time to encourage people to register to vote.
