The “West Wing” is back in action! Or, at least the cast is.

Six years after going off the air, Martin Sheen, Allison Janney, Bradley Whitford and other key cast members of the vaulted series reunited for a public service announcement to discuss the upcoming election.

The PSA was created to discuss non-partisan ballots, with the crew noting that voters in Michigan who vote only along party lines will unknowingly skip parts of the ballot where nonpartisan candidates, like those for the state Supreme Court, are listed.

The video features Bridget Mary McCormack, the Michigan State Supreme Court candidate whose sister Mary acted on the series. Mary called in a few favors to drive awareness about the ballot
.
“It sort of snowballed and all of sudden, Martin Sheen signed up and I was like, ‘Whoa,’” Bridget McCormack said in an interview with news site Michigan Live.

Other celebrities to appear on the video include Richard Schiff, Joshua Malina, Janel Moloney and Lily Tomlin with the project costing less than $5,000 to make.

Here’s the clip of the show’s reunion, however brief.
