Steve Carell: 'Voting Is A Right And A Privilege'

Actor and funny man Steve Carell gets serious about voting in a new video for Our Time.

"You should want to vote, because voting is a right and a privilege," Carell says in the video.

As Election Day 2012 approaches, Carell stresses to his "billions" of young fans that voting is a "responsibility." Our Time partnered with Carell -- along with actress Amber Valletta, Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas and others -- in order to encourage youth voters to cast their ballots by November 6.
