With the US elections just 10 days away, US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found a unique way to garner the attention of young citizens and encourage them to vote. Ocasio-Cortez live-streamed herself playing the popular game ‘Among Us’ along with Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and YouTube personalities like Pokimane, Jack Septic Eye and Hasanabi.
“@AOC is playing Among Us with @pokimanelol, @hasanthehun, @DrLupo and @IlhanMN to help people make voting plans,” tweeted the official handle B/R Gaming while sharing Cortez’s video.
Developed by American game studio InnerSloth, the online multi-player game allows the participants to prepare their spaceship for launch. However, among them is an imposter who aims to sabotage the mission.

Earlier, in a post, Cortez had invited people to play with her and tweeted, “Anyone wants to play Among Us with me on Twitch to get out the vote? (I’ve never played but it looks like a lot of fun).”
