Billy Eichner Talks His Glam Up the Midterms Campaign: 'I'm Doing This As A Citizen'

Billy Eichner stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday (February 5) to talk all about his brand new campaign called Glam Up the Midterms, a bipartisan effort to get young people out to vote.

“Young people are now the most influential largest voting bloc, if you vote,” the 39-year-old entertainer told Seth. “Which means you have the opportunity to be the deciding factor in a lot of these congressional races so that’s what glam up the midterms is all about.”

Billy also explains why he thinks actors should be allowed to talk politics: “I’m doing this as a citizen. I’ve been shouting at people on the street for years on Billy on the Street but now I’m trying to use my voice for something good. If you’re going to tell actors to talk about politics that’s like telling people who aren’t professional athletes to not talk about the Superbowl. It’s ridiculous.”
