ABC will air a one-hour comedy special this month encouraging Americans to vote this November, hosted by Kevin Hart.

VOMO: Vote or Miss Out, created by ATTN: in partnership with When We All Vote, will air from 10-11 p.m. Eastern on Monday, Sept. 14, 2020.

Among those scheduled to appear during the hour: 2 Chainz and Lil Baby, Cristela Alonzo, Tim Allen, Whitney Cummings, Will Ferrell, Kaia Gerber, Charlamagne Tha God, Tiffany Haddish, Jon Hamm, Scarlett Johansson, Liza Koshy, Jay Leno, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith.

The special will also feature prominent political figures from both the Democratic and Republican parties, including Michelle Obama, former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, and Ann Romney and Cindy McCain. The aim: Getting out the vote this November, with information on how to register and how to submit your votes this fall during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have a societal responsibility to participate in our country’s democracy,” said Tom Werner. “This nonpartisan special will, through comedy, encourage people to vote this November.”

“Voter participation is in ATTN:’s DNA, and we hope that we can create an event that will speak to all generations, young and old, in a way that shows them that by engaging in the political process, we have an exceptional opportunity to have our voices and values reflected at every level of government,” added ATTN: co-founder Matthew Segal.
