December 17, 2019 100 By Kailee Schamberger


– [Orange] How 2 you do, fruit lovers? Orange and Pear here with a
super exciting episode of How 2. Tell ’em what it is Pear. Oh man, I bet it’s so exciting. – [Pear] Actually, it is. Today, we’re showing
you patriotic Americans How 2 Register to Vote. (record scratching) – [Orange] How to register to vote? That’s not exciting. That sounds like a super boring,
unless, do we get stickers? – [Pear] Stickers? – [Orange] Yeah, the I Voted stickers everybody shows off on Instagram. Do we get one of those? Do we, do we, do we, do we? – Sure, I guess, but
we have to vote first. – [Orange] Then what are we waiting for? Let’s vote, let’s vote right now. – [Pear] Okay, all right, all right. I’m glad you’re enthused, even if it is just for a sticker. – [Orange] What else am I
supposed to be excited about? Democracy? (laughs) – [Pear] Well, yeah, actually, yes. I was hoping you’d be
excited for democracy. – [Orange] (laughs) Oh
Pear, you’re a riot. – (scoffs) All right, step
one, visit this website. It’s is the National Association of Secretaries of State website and it’s where you’ll find
info on everything you need; how to register to vote in your state, how to check if you’re
currently registered. – [Orange] Where to pick up your sticker. – [Pear] The location
of your polling place. – [Orange] Where to stick
your sticker on your body. – [Pear] Info on absentee voting. – [Orange] How to get the best lighting for your Instagram post of
you wearing your sticker. – [Pear] Orange. (record scratching)
– [Orange] What? Are you mad that I’m so stuck
on that one thing? (laughs) – [Pear] Yeah, actually I am. Voting is fundamental to our democracy. It’s way more important
than just getting a sticker. – [Orange] Hey, getting
a sticker’s a big deal. I’ve never had a sticker
that wasn’t edible. (Orange farts)
(Orange laughs) – [Pear] Okay, dude, can
we just please focus? First question, the website wants to know what state you’re in. – [Orange] Confusion, mostly. (laughs) – [Pear] (scoffs) You can say that again. All right, step two, after you’ve followed the website’s instructions and registered to vote, it’s time to go to your polling place on Election Day. – [Orange] To pick up
your sticker, woo hoo. (record scratching)
– [Pear] Not so fast, Orange. You don’t get a sticker
just for showing up. You have to vote first. – [Orange] (grumbles) Man, wow. They really string you
along for this sticker, huh? – [Pear] Step three, when it’s your turn, you’ll go into a private voting booth. – [Orange] Wait, so no one
else can see what I vote for? – [Pear] Nope. That’s one of the great
things about voting. You’re free to vote exactly how you want and no one can pressure you. You can even write in names of people not listed on the ballot. – [Orange] Hold the phone. Lemme get this straight. If I wanna write in, oh, I dunno, Chicken Butt for Senate, then? – [Pear] Then, yeah, you can do that. It’s a waste of a vote
if you ask me, but– – [Orange] No buts, Pear,
only Chicken Butts. (laughs) You said I’m free to vote for
exactly who I want, right? – [Pear] Yeah, that’s true. – [Orange] Then I choose
Chicken Butt. (laughs) – [Pear] Oh boy. – [Orange] Chicken Butt for Senate, for governor, for comptroller. Chicken Butt for everything. (laughs) – [Pear] (sighs) Well, nobody
said Democracy was perfect. – [Orange] (laughs) Now
it’s sticker time, right? – [Pear] Yes. After you put your
ballot in the ballot box, it’s time for step four, get your sticker. – [Orange] (laughs) I did it, I did it. Look at me, everyone. Look what a great person I am. I voted, I’m a great citizen. Chicken Butt for everything. (laughs) – [Chicken Butt] Excuse me? – [Orange] Huh? – [Chicken Butt] Hi, I’m Chicken Butt. I heard you voted for me
for, well, everything. I wanted to thank you. Thanks to your enthusiasm, I wound up winning every
position in the government. – [Orange] Wait, really? You mean a Chicken Butt is actually running our government now? – [Chicken Butt] Yep. – [Orange] Cool, is that
why our civilization is crumbling before our very eyes? – [Chicken Butt] I’ll be honest with ya, running the entire government is probably a job for more
than one Chicken Butt. Was I qualified in any way
to run the entire government? Not at all, but you voted for my butt, so I’m gonna keep doing everything a lone Chicken Butt can do. – [Orange] Oh, so can you start by making sure that
building doesn’t fall on us? – [Chicken Butt] Sorry,
Chicken Butts can’t do that. – [Orange] Well, what
can Chicken Butts do? – [Chicken Butt] Basically
just this. (farts) (record scratching)
(Orange scoffs) – [Chicken Butt] Later. – [Orange] Pear, I made a mistake. I should’ve been taken
voting more seriously. – [Pear] Well, I’m glad
you came around, dude. It just goes to show, anyone
can run for public office. Even you and me. – [Orange] Whoa, really? We should totally run. – [Pear] Absolutely. Though, that’s a whole other
topic for another video. – [Orange] No, we should totally run. (record scratching)
– [Pear] Huh? (both screaming) (building thuds) (upbeat music)
