Stranger Things star David Harbour took to Instagram on Monday in order to encourage voters to participate in today's midterm elections. Harbour opted not to post the classic “I Voted” sticker picture, and instead turned to the Jaws movie series to get his message across.

In Jaws, the mayor chooses not to close Amity’s beaches, disregarding evidence that there is a dangerous shark hunting in the waters, which of course leads to disastrous results. As the post states, the mayor’s tenure in the sequel is why voters need to turn up to polls this Election Day. We're sure the point wasn't lost on Harbour's 3.1 million Instagram followers.
