Filmmaker Michael Moore has offered to call non-voting Americans in a last-minute bid to get them to the polls on Tuesday (06Nov12).

The famed political activist reached out to his online fans and asked for the personal details of their pals who were not planning to vote - because he wants to do all he can to change their minds.

He states, "There are only a few hours left until the polls close. Every minute is precious at this point. I know many/most of you have convinced your one non-voter to vote today. But I/we need a million of these, and I want no non-voter left behind.

"Is there someone you know/love who is still on the fence and has not voted yet today? Would a personal call or text from me help? Send me their cell number and I will spend the next four hours calling or texting them to ask/plead that they go to the polls right now.

"You can text me their number at 810-522-8398. Obviously I won't be able to get to them all, but I will do as many as I can. Time is running out. I'm already on the phone..."
