ATTENTION WEST WING GEEKS! "A West Wing Special to Benefit When We All Vote" aired yesterday on HBO Max, and it was a rollercoaster ride of nostalgia.

As Bradley Whitford explained in typical "Josh Lyman" fashion, the cast and crew were very eager to help When We All Vote, which is why they worked so hard to put on a safe, educational, and entertaining show.

Here are seven things everyone should know about voting:

1. It could be quite a while until we find out the results of the election.

2. Voter fraud isn't just unlikely — it baaarely exists.

3. No one is "apolitical" because politics affect everyone.

4. You should sign up to become a poll worker if you are young and don't have any preexisting conditions.

5. In many countries, citizens still don't get to choose their representatives in free and fair elections — so if you have the right to vote, it's imperative that you use it.

6. And so many Americans are still being denied their right to vote, too.

7. Your vote really does matter!

NOW, 👏 LET'S! 👏 GO! 👏 VOTE!
