Comedian and actress Chelsea Handler appears to be doing everything she can in an effort to encourage people to go vote. Reports state that the popular Trump critic and former talk show host stripped down to promote voter participation in the midterm elections on Tuesday.

Handler posted a topless picture of herself on Instagram, wearing just a pair of black lace underwear and covering her chest with her arm, while standing in her dressing room. Her post was backed with a caption, saying: "You have to vote, like your life depends on it. Vote!"

She also mentioned her upcoming engagements campaigning for Democratic California congressional candidates Katie Porter and Gil Cisneros in her home state. She also added that she will make an appearance at UC Irvine.

The 43-year-old, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump ever since he was elected two years ago, in October 2017 had announced that she was quitting her talk show on Netflix to give more time and attention to getting women elected in public office, according to ET Online

"Like so many across the country, the past presidential election and the countless events that have unfolded since have galvanized me," Handler wrote on Twitter at the time. "From the national level down to the grassroots, it's clear our decisions at the ballot box next year will mark a defining moment for our nation."

“It’s so important that you don’t just register to vote but you also go to vote so we can take our country back for all the marginalized groups that are suffering under his (President Trump) thumb. This is our country," said Handler, who is also infamous for her naked gags on Instagram as a form of protest against the media-sharing platform's censorship rules.
