'Parks and Recreation' TV stars urge early voting for Obama

"If you vote early, Election Day is wide open, you can do whatever you want," says Scott in the video.

"Whatever you want," adds Jones. "You can totally chill hard-core with your bros," says Scott.

The comedic duo throw ideas back and forth about what one could do on Election Day if they'd already voted, including enjoying a "brewski," organizing a water balloon fight on the roof, napping and listening to Huey Lewis and the News.

"The point is you will have a free day. You will have lots of free days," says Jones.

"You can volunteer for the Obama campaign," suggests Scott.

Jones campaigned for Obama during the 2008 campaign and later dated the president's speechwriter, Jon Favreau.

The video directs viewers to the website GottaVote.com, a get-out-the-vote campaign that first lady Michelle Obama has been promoting in recent weeks.

"[W]e want as many of you to vote as early as possible so that you can spend Election Day working to get other people to the polls, right? So to find out where to early vote or request a mail-in ballot, all you have to do is go to one of our websites, GottaRegister.com, GottaVote.com. Young people, technology — you don’t even have to leave your rooms," said Obama at a campaign event in Tallahassee, Fla., on Monday.

Scott and Jones are two of many actors throwing their support behind the president. Scarlett Johansson, Kerry Washington and campaign co-chairwoman Eva Longoria all spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., earlier this month.

And in a political full circle, Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) filmed cameos for an episode of the sitcom, which returns to NBC on Sept. 20.

During a recent appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Scott said all the lawmakers were "really good."

"You realize that they're senators, so they're used to just walking around and just bullsh---ing, so they're really good actors," Scott said.
