Harrison Barnes is obviously getting ready for the NBA Finals, but it hasn ’t stopped him from keeping one eye on the election process. As you may know, his nickname is the ‘The Senator’ and he’s expressed interest in running for senate once his playing career is over.  So while that may be years away, he did team up with Red Bull Media House to create this new animated “How To Vote” civics tutorial similar to the popular throwback political shorts of the 90’s.  In a conversation with an animated Ballot, Harrison explains popular votes, electoral votes and the tricky nuances of it all.  This video is Harrison’s approach to encouraging people to make their voices heard in the presidential election and to “not let harsh rhetoric divide us.”  “Your vote is your voice, don’t miss the opportunity to be heard,” said Barnes. This dude seems to have his head on straight. Check out the VIDEO below.-TO
