In a voter awareness campaign video for Myanmar's upcoming historic elections, Angelina Jolie Pitt urges Myanmar people to take part in making history, the Christian Post reported on 23 September.

The Hollywood actress tells the people of Myanmar to check voter lists and make sure that they and members of their families are on the list and are registered to vote. "Make sure your name is on the list so you can vote on Election Day," she says in the video.

The video was released by the Myanmar government's electoral body, the Union Election Committee, wherein Jolie Pitt says she saw a lot about the elections and how the campaigns affect the country as a whole, thus she is encouraging the people to exercise their rights to vote and be one of the people who will make history on 8 November.
