The tweet also included a screen-share of a group chat in which celebrities such as Kerry Washington, Chris Paul, Selena Gomez, Tom Hanks, Shonda Rhimes and Janelle Monáe assured Obama that they were up for the challenge.

The goal of the challenge is to mobilize voters to take action and have their voices heard in the Nov. 3 presidential election. More than 6 million Americans in 27 states have already cast their ballots.
