In the video, the voters pull out their best “Cha Cha Slide” moves while waiting to vote in the 2020 U.S. Presidental Election.
The clip drew attention from a number of Hollywood’s biggest names, including Wanda Sykes.
“I see you #Philly! We know winning this jawn is crucial,” Skyes wrote.

“This is #JoyToThePolls created by @NelStamp @paolamendoza @sarahsophief and so many other wonderful organizers in an effort to bring celebration and fun to long voting lines. I love this SO MUCH,” said Amber Tamblyn.
Election Defenders started the “Joy To The Polls” as a way to bring fun to those waiting in line to vote. Election Defenders describes themselves as a group that “will be working to provide safe supports for voting (such as PPE and water), and election and voter defense, de-escalating white supremacist intimidation tactics and signaling to a network of groups and lawyers if and where trouble breaks out.”
