No, that’s not Jessica Alba in bondage; it’s the actress posing in a provocative new ad for Declare Yourself, a nonprofit, nonpartisan voter initiative that encourages 18-29 year olds to vote. The “Only You Can Silence Yourself” campaign features Alba quite literally silenced, with gags and masks stifling her voice as a citizen.
Jessica says, “I really don’t see the point in not registering to vote. We sign up for MySpace pages and Facebook pages, and download music off the internet. The least people can do is register to vote online, actually making a difference in their world, not just making their lives a little bit cooler.”
