"And when you vote for president, you get to pick who participates in the sequel."

"The room where it happens is the voting booth," asserts Lin-Manuel Miranda in a new set of Hamilton PSAs encouraging voter registration for the presidential election.

"There's nothing Americans love more than posting online who you should vote for / You tweet and you snap and you gawk, but if you don't show up and vote, it's all just talk," he raps to the sounds of "The Schuyler Sisters," as played by Renee Elise Goldsberry, Lexi Lawson and Jasmine Cephas Jones. (Don't worry, "and Peggy" is still in there.)

In another 30-second video, Goldsberry tweaks her rap from the song: "And when you vote for president, you get to pick who participates in the sequel." A third video sees Miranda and Anthony Ramos singing in Spanish while on the Broadway stage.

The spots will air on multiple networks including CBS, NBC, Fusion, Univision and Telemundo.
