Donald Duck Encourages You to Vote in this Rare 1970s Video

By Patricia Sheppard, The Walt Disney Company

Disneyland used to create public service videos and distribute them to television stations. Some — like this one — served as a fun reminder encouraging people to vote while promoting our parks and characters.
