The primary election is less than sixty days away, and several exotic dancers are using their assets to grab everyone's attention and urge them to head to the polls.

A viral voting PSA video on social media featuring seven Atlanta strippers has taken social media by storm. The message is not conventional, but clear; each dancer stresses that the president is not the only race on the ballot, and many other races will impact you on a personal level.

According to the website, PSA Director Angela Barnes-Gomes thought it would be a great idea to have exotic dancers from some of Atlanta's finest gentlemen's clubs to tell their patrons and fans to 'Get their booties to the poll!'  The video received praise for creativity, but also faced criticism online for explicitly targeting black men. Some critics even suggested that Gomes was paid to shoot the out of the box video, which she vehemently says is not valid. 

Angela teamed up with Paul Fox, a prop master-turned-producer based out of Atlanta- and it was on. The pair recruited a slew of talented filmmakers and dancers as a creative approach to help to increase voter turn-out amongst the black male demographic. Gomes and her team added, "We hope that our passionate message becomes reality when you take your booty to the poll and vote this election cycle."

In Georgia, the deadline for voters to register is October 5, 2020. To register online or to check your voting status or polling location, visit https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do.
