Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr. want you to exercise your right to vote in the upcoming election.

On Sunday, the Avengers stars reunited via FaceTime to take part in the I Am a Voter campaign, a nonpartisan movement dedicated to encouraging voter participation ahead of November's presidential election.

"My best friend in the whole wide world!" says Paltrow, who played Pepper Potts, wife of Tony Stark/Iron Man, in the Avengers films.

"Do you know why I'm calling today?" the Goop founder, 47, asks before they chat about #RegisteraFriendDay with just 100 days until the election.

"@robertdowneyjr and I are ARE VOTERS!" Paltrow captioned the video. "We are taking part in @iamavoter’s campaign to get 100,000 voters to vote in November. There’s only 100 more days left until Election Day, so we are asking ALL OF THE FANS TO SHOW LOVE TO YOURSELF AND COUNTRY AND US❤️🇺🇸❤️."

"Can you remind a friend to register to vote today?" the mother of two wrote. "A reminder from a friend makes a person 2X more likely to vote. It’s quick and simple: Register and receive upcoming election reminders by texting FRIENDS to 26797. #RegisterAFriendDay#makerobertlaugh."

One Tree Hill stars Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton Morgan, and Bethany Joy Lenz also reunited remotely on Sunday to encourage each other — and those watching — to register to vote.

"P. Sawyer, Haley James, and B. Davis want you to text FRIENDS to 26797 to make sure you’re registered. It’s THE EASY CHOICE, after all 🤣💁🏻‍♀️😘♥️," Bush, 38, captioned the video on Instagram.

Friends costars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow reminded their fans to register to vote, sharing a video and photo of the trio.

Will & Grace stars Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Eric McCormack also advocated for voter registration in an Instagram video shared by Messing, 51, on Sunday. "Friends don't let friends skip elections!! We have 100 DAYS until THE ELECTION!" the actress wrote.

Other celebrities, including Tracee Ellis Ross, Jaime King and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, shared social media posts urging fans to register to vote.
