SHARE Lena Dunham joins Lil John on ‘Turn Out for What’

Lena Dunham was in town last night for a reading of her new book at the Chicago Humanities Festival, but today she helped voters in Illinois — and across the country.

The “Girls” creator and “Not That Kind of Girl” author joined forces with Lil Jon, Natasha Lyonne, Whoopi Goldberg and others for a turn on his “Turn Down for What” musical public service announcement to remind voters that the midterm elections matter.

“Turn Out for What,” the latest Rock The Vote campaign, may just be the best one yet.

As a reminder, today is the last day to register to vote for the Illinois midterm election.
