COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Matt Damon is urging Ohioans to register and vote this week for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
The actor recorded an automated call for the Ohio Democratic Party that asks people to take advantage of a window during which new voters can register and cast an absentee ballot in one visit. That period began Tuesday and ends Monday.
On the call, Damon says to press one to find out about nearby voting hours and locations. He also urges people to volunteer for Obama.
Damon drew headlines last month when he told The Associated Press that Republican Sarah Palin's vice presidential candidacy was like "a bad Disney movie."

edit: I don't know if you all have seen this, but it's pretty funny.
