Actors for Senator Barack Obama have put their support behind the Senator by traveling to colleges across the state to get students registered to vote.
Ellen Pompeo who currently plays "Meredith Grey" in the show "Grey's Anatomy", and Danielle Panabaker, star of "Shark", spoke to a modest crowd of students this afternoon at East Carolina University.
The women are traveling from campus to campus to encourage college students to vote early.
Since North Carolina is considered a battle ground state in the election, the Obama campaign pays from them to travel to stump for him.
This can also become a scarifice for the actresses who became vocal about their politically views while working on popular T.V. shows.
Ellen Pompeo who currently plays “Meredith Grey” in the show Grey’s Anatomy, and Danielle Panabaker, star of Shark, will be at East Carolina University Sunday, to speak in support of Barack Obama.
Pompeo and Panabaker will address students in the Mendenhall Great Room at the Mendenhall Student Center at 11:30 AM Sunday about the importance of registering to vote and getting involved in this year’s election. The voter registration deadline is October 10, but early voting starts on October 16.
Pompeo and Panabaker will also make stops at UNC Wilmington, Campbell University, Meredith College, UNC Pembroke and NC State University.
