Kathryn Hahn is taking time away from acting to put the spotlight on a new passion: voting!

Speaking with Ellen on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday, Hahn tells the talk-show host about her “profoundly gratifying day” canvassing for the upcoming U.S. midterm election, encouraging everyone to volunteer and vote.

“I’m telling you it was so gratifying, if people have time to volunteer… it’s so satisfying,” she says. “If there is not another election that is as important, I really, really feel it in my bones.”

Hahn, whose most recent film “Private Life” is now available on Netflix, also talks about her love of Halloween.

“I love a scary thing, I do love a horror movie,” she shares. “Halloween though …I’m an actor, so the idea of dressing up is a little like ….eeerrrromggghhh.” And it’s a good thing the actress is wearing her “brown pants” because Ellen has a little pre-Halloween treat for her – check it out in the video above!
