"You guys, I just sent in my ballot and I was just checking to see if you voted yet," Najimy said in the video. The actress also said she texted VOTER to 26797 and the process couldn't have been easier.

"It's a very big deal, this election, obviously," she said. "Part of me feels that, because so many young people felt disenfranchised in the last election — for whatever reason — my fervent hope is that those that sat out will decide that, even if a candidate can't get them to the exact destination point, the opportunity to get so much closer to where they know this country needs to be."

"No, we shouldn't," Najimy responded, with Parker adding, "Dare we?"

'Battle of the Brothers' Explores William and Harry's Rift: 12 Revelations

  'Battle of the Brothers' Explores William and Harry's Rift: 12 Revelations A new royal tell-all is providing new insight into Prince William and Prince Harry’s rocky relationship. Reporter Robert Lacey explores the origins of the princes’ rift in his book, Battle of Brothers: William and Harry – The Inside Story of a Family in Tumult, which was released on Tuesday, October 20. Lacey, who works as the historical consultant for Netflix’s The Crown, has been writing about Queen Elizabeth II and the British royal family for four decades. According to the author, the tension between William, 38, and Harry, 36, “runs deep” after a disagreement over the latter’s relationship with wife Meghan Markle. “What many people would like to see is those two brothers to come back together. But … they are not going to,” Lacey told The Sun earlier this month, claiming the resentment between them was “crystallized by Meghan.” Harry and Meghan, 39, started seeing each other in 2016. After announcing their engagement in November 2017, the twosome exchanged vows at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in England in May 2018. Harry and Meghan went on to welcome son Archie in May 2019. By early 2020, the couple announced their plans to step back from their roles working for the monarch. By March, the pair officially moved to the United States and have yet to return to the U.K. “Harry, of course, is on the record several times saying he does not like the term Megxit.
