The stars ironically list a whole list of reasons not to vote, in order to show how important it is.

The US presidential election takes place next month, but one in four Americans still are not registered to vote.

A spokesman for Google said: "We're trying to help increase participation by making sure voters have easy access to voting information."

The company has created a voter info map which collates registration, absentee and early voting information.
