I vote to make my voice heard" and the tagline "Characters Unite to Vote." Fans will be directed to the Characters Unite Facebook page for more information and encouraged to use the Twitter hashtag #charactersunitetovote to share the posters and help get friends and family members out to vote on Election Day.
