Virgin America, in a partnership with Rock the Vote, debuted an in-flight voter registration program with a little help from President Obama and Mitt Romney today — or at least two guys doing their best to look like them. Presidential impersonator Reggie Brown portrayed Obama, while Jim Gossett dressed as Romney.

Passengers on some of Virgin’s flights will be able to use their back-of-the-seat entertainment screens to register to vote up until Election Day of this year.
