With record turnout expected in tomorrow's presidential election, Paris Hilton is ready to accept a big thank-you from the winner.

Speaking at the press day for her new organ-harvesting musical horror flick Repo! The Genetic Opera, Hilton told E! News that her Paris for President videos totally helped herd young folks in the booths.

"It's exciting to be involved in the biggest election in history," she said. "It encourages a lot of young voters to speak their voice and to vote."

Not only did she help mobilize the masses, but she managed to get, like, all kinds of important stuff and things into their heads.

"I was talking about issues and actually making sense but still playing with my image at the same time," she explained. "Doing it in a ditzy way, but actually saying things I think can really help it along."

Any advice, then, for tomorrow's winner?

"Whoever becomes the next president has a lot on their hands," she said. "It's going to be hard for anyone."

Gee, thanks a lot, Paris.
