Errol Morris Talks With Young Voters In New Campaign (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Filmmaker Errol Morris has teamed up with OurTime.org to release a new video series aimed at encouraging young voters to get to the polls on Tuesday.

Morris, whose acclaimed documentaries include "The Fog of War" and "The Thin Blue Line," spoke with young voters about the importance of voting, as well as why many of their peers do not vote, as part of Our Time's "pledge to vote" campaign.

In a video released Friday, Morris spoke with a young man named David about why he plans to vote next week.

"In a representative Democracy, not voting doesn't make any sense," he tells Morris.

Watch the video above.
