Bradley Cooper is doing his part to get more people to register to vote in the upcoming November 3 election in his native Pennsylvania.

The acclaimed actor and director, 45, teamed up with Now This News for a video describing the three ways people can vote: by mail, early in-person, or at a polling place on Election Day. 

And he’s doing it by breaking down the do’s and the don’ts to make sure residents of the Keystone State have their voices heard.

The three-plus minute video begins with Cooper looking straight into the camera and declaring how ‘voting in Pennsylvania is easy’ as long as citizens first check to see if they’re registered.  

The deadline to register online in Pennsylvania is Monday, October 19, which Cooper maintained will ‘take less than five minutes.’ 

He then recommended residents to decide whether to cast their vote in the national and local races, in-person or by mail.  

To register online people need to go to the Pennsylvania Department Of State’s website and have a valid Pennsylvania driver’s license, a valid state Identification card or the last four digits of their social security number.

For those wanting to register offline residents can pick up a voter registration application from the post office, library, state liquor store or government office. 

‘When the application is approved you’ll receive a voter registration card in the mail,’ the A Star Is Born star added.

To vote by mail, people have to request a mail-in ballot by 5 p.m. on October 27. 

Absentee ballots must be postmarked by 8 p.m. on November 3 and arrive by 5 p.m. Friday November 6. Folks can also return their ballots to a mail-in drop box.        

While getting into some of the don’ts of voting in Pennsylvania, Cooper warned voters not to submit a naked ballot, which is when someone sends back the return envelope with just the ballot inside.

To avoid having their vote invalid, people need to stuff the provided secrecy envelope into the postage-paid return envelope, and then send it in.

Cooper also reminded voters to sign their ballots, adding that it’s one of the most common mistakes people make. 

People voting for the first time will need to bring their ID to the polling station. Acceptable photo ID’s include a driver’s license, a government ID, a military ID and a U.S. passport, a student ID or a employee ID. Those without a photo ID can use a document that has their name and address

Acceptable alternatives to a photo ID include a utility bill, paycheck, bank statement and voter registration card.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on November 3.

The video ended with a shot of Cooper adding: ‘As long as you’re in line by 8 p.m. you have the right to vote. So do it.’

Kimberly will no doubt be enjoying an afternoon of pampering after joining the cobbles as escort Nicky Wheatley.

The character has developed an unusual relationship with Daniel Osbourne after he lost his wife, Sinead, to cancer last year.  

Things took a slightly more sinister turn when Daniel started asking Nicky to wear Sinead’s clothes and perfume. 

Although recently, Daniel stole an envelope of cash belonging to Geoff Metcalfe so Nicky can pay off her debts and start a new life away from being an escort.

Over the summer, Kimberly revealed she has been trying to get a role on Coronation Street for ten years.

She told Inside Soap: ‘My first ever audition for Coronation Street was probably about 10 years ago, when I’d just finished drama school. I completely over-acted!

‘I was so hammy because I couldn’t understand the difference between doing theatre and TV.’

She added: ‘But with the role of Nicky, I only auditioned once – I just walked into the room and thought, “I’m having this one!”‘

Kimberly sweetly added that it was her late father’s dream for her to secure a role on the cobbles.

She told The Sun: ‘Unfortunately, I lost my dad in 2007. One of the last things he said to me was, “Just do me a favour and get on Corrie, love.” We had that shared ­connection with it.’
