Every Vote Counts is an appeal to all Americans – all races, creeds and parties – to get to the polls in the final days of this election season. The nonpartisan special will remind viewers that the right to vote has been hard fought, fair elections must be protected, and above all a strong democracy depends on participation. The special will aim to inspire viewers to rally their families and communities to go to the polls.
