Homer Simpson Tries To Vote for Obama

 - Oct 5, 2008   Updated: Jul 14 2011
In this Simpsons sketch, Homer tries to go and vote for Obama but ends up voting for 'President McCain' about six times.

Homer only wants to vote for anything that will take money away from parks and libraries, so he is sent to booth three. He can't fit in a normal booth, however, so he has to use the double-wide one. Can someone tell me if these exist in the UK?

Implications - Using Pop culture to generate interest in an upcoming election is a great strategy to stimulate voting amongst youth demographics. The Simpsons is a very appropriate reference that most young consumers can identify closely with.
