Tuesday is Election Day and Louis Ortiz is voting for Barack Obama.

But Louis Ortiz is not your ordinary Obama supporter. Since 2008, Ortiz has put his uncanny physical resemblance to the president to good use by working as professional impersonator.

"This American Life" profiled profiled Ortiz, detailing the story of a young man plagued by mounting bills, struggling to find work, who eventually capitalized on Obama's message of hope. (Listen below)

He once said, "Never in a million years could I imagine I could look like not just someone famous, but THE someone. It's Obama. It's history. The first African American president of the United States - and I'm a part of it."

Four years later, Ortiz is hoping to see the president remain in the White House. Watch his endorsement above.
