Kingston, PA -- One Democratic voter from Luzerne County has decided to bare all to convince people to vote.

The woman's risqué pictures were posted Tuesday night and they are already starting to go viral with 100,000 views within 24 hours

The question is will those pictures actually bring out more people to the polls?

Chelsy Zelasko, 25, from Shavertown, tells Newswatch 16 she is a registered Democrat. She is trying to open her own business, so she plans to vote for Republican Donald Trump on November 8, hoping he brings jobs to the area.


"I accepted more of his views on policy and health care and his overall demeanor," said Zelasko.

In an effort to get more people to vote, she decided to take photos for the Scranton-based entertainment website, "Better Than The Weekend." They appear in the "Dreams Exposed" section.

In the mildly suggestive photos, she is covered by guns or an American flag.

"Better Than The Weekend," told Newswatch 16 the website wanted to feature someone who would proudly express which candidate they support.


Chelsy insists this is not a publicity stunt.

"I feel like so many people are afraid of voting just because of the factor if you talk about who you are going to vote for people instantly jump down your throat about it," said Zelasko.

When asked about Trump's demeaning talk about women, Zelasko stressed that the Republican nominee shouldn't be held accountable for what was said in private.

"I just feel like we shouldn't hold that against him or hold on the pedestal," said Zelasko.

People Newswatch 16 spoke to in Public Square with were less than thrilled about the pictures. Most said there are better avenues to encourage voting like knocking doors or passing out letters.


"Why would you want to expose yourself? People are going to vote how they are going to vote by now. I think and I think that people are going a little bit overboard," said Elaine Pollick of Wilkes-Barre.

"You see, like, these young kids take pride in their candidate and want to get involved, but I just think a lot of people take it a little too far," said Randy Lisnock, a junior at King's College.

Zelasko hopes by seeing these photos, people will be inspired to head to polls on Election Day, November 8.
