The scariest thing about this post is that some people actually take advice from these wizards.

Didn’t vote in the last midterm elections? It turns out many of the celebrities pressuring young people to vote in tomorrow’s off-year elections didn’t cast a ballot last time, either.

View co-host Whoopi Goldberg, Orange is the New Black’s Natasha Lyonne, Glee’s Darren Criss, Girls creator Lena Dunham and Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star E.J. Johnson did not vote in the last midterm election, the Post discovered.
