Together, Ben Gleib and VotePlus10 Spark Change!
We’re excited to announce that Ben Gleib, the accomplished stand-up comedian, TV host, commentator, and producer, is working with brand new civic engagement organization VotePlus10 to promote civic action and positive change in the United States.
Meet Ben Gleib
Ben is the host, head writer and executive producer of “Idiotest” on Netflix, and was one of the stars of “Chelsea Lately.” He hosted a social impact show on HLN, and has been a guest contributor or anchor on CNN, ABC News digital, NPR, and The Young Turks. Ben also hosts the podcast Last Week on Earth with Ben Gleib, and the live streaming comedy show Social Distancing Social Club with fellow comedians Steve Hofstetter (also on VotePlus10), Chris Bowers, and Rachel Gallagher.
His podcast ranked #1 on Stitcher for eight straight weeks, and debuted at #9 on iTunes Comedy. Amidst the onset of the pandemic, Ben also started the Nowhere Comedy Club, the world’s first virtual comedy club.
Having run for the Democratic nomination for President in 2020, Ben is no stranger to politics, and the need for tools to organize and expand civic action. And if there is ever a year – and a decade – that is critically important to deepen our engagement with our democracy, this is it!
Why Ben Uses VotePlus10
“We are in a crucial moment in the history of our nation and world as a whole. There are so many urgent, existential problems happening all at once, which would seem insurmountable if people weren’t more activated than ever, with more tools to affect change than we have ever had. This is why I’m excited to be working with VotePlus10. They help you focus on the few actions you can take in just ten minutes a month to affect change over a range of issues. And if you can’t spare ten minutes, you just don’t care at all. May as well wear a green trench coat with writing on the back.”
We are so excited that Ben wants to use VotePlus10’s simple actions and gamified interface to generate collective action within his community. He has selected a variety of actions and will rally his fans to take action to promote a healthy democracy, fight injustice in our society, and empower friends to join the cause.
To encourage action, Ben is offering a live Zoom meet-and-greet for users who get 10 of their friends to commit and register to vote. Every user who reaches this goal will also receive a free digital copy of Ben’s album, “Live from the Vortex,” recorded in Atlanta and produced by Margaret Cho.
If you’re ready to save the country with Ben, click the action below, then sign up or login after you click “Count Me In!” Next, share the actions “Are You Registered to Vote?” and “Do You Commit to Voting in 2020?” from your VotePlus10 account.
