The campaign features four posters
with photographs taken by leading photographer Rankin and an online
60-second advert starring Harewood, made by ad agency Saatchi and
Saatchi.
Launching the campaign, Harewood said
voting was the only way to change institutions such as Westminster and
make them more representative of a multicultural Britain.
“What [the campaign] brilliantly illustrates is that if you don’t
register to vote, you are quite literally taking all the vibrancy we
have in our community off the table,”
said David Harewood.

He added, “If you don’t register to vote, politicians don’t
really care about you, politicians aren’t really caring about what you
have to say, what you have to do, anything.”

The imagery is striking. As we approach the 2016 presidential elections, it definitely gives us something to think about.
