As November 3 looms, many of us have already voted early. More than 22 million Americans and counting have already cast ballots in the 2020 election as of October 16, and some political analysts predict this election could have one of the highest turnout rates ever. How cool is that? So while you were busy double-checking your voter registration status (opens in new tab), making sure your mailed-in ballot (opens in new tab) was requested, and stocking up on cute voter merch (opens in new tab), some of your favorite celebrities were getting out the vote.
It's become an odd but wonderful rite of passage for stars to hit up Instagram and post a photo of them experiencing the serotonin boost that is doing your civic duty. I'm a fan of it, naturally. Someone with such a high profile using their powers for the greater good, such as sharing how people can vote and tips for filling out a mail-in ballot, screams icon status, at least to me.
Now, if you're worried if it's technically legal to take a quick little photo with your ballot and post it online, it all depends on your state. It's legally frowned upon in New York, while in California, patrons are free to snap away. (If you want to see where your state lands on the list, click here.

If you voted but didn’t take a slightly seductive winking selfie with your I Voted sticker, did you really even vote? The answer is YES. So look up early voting locations in your area, drop off your mail in ballot at an official drop box or polling place, or vote SAFELY in person on Election Day! However you do it, just VOTE.

That cheeky smile is because I had the pleasure of voting early! Did you? It will surprise exactly nobody to learn that I support #bidenharris- because I want a world where healthcare is a right not a privilege, women have bodily autonomy, systemic racism doesn’t run rampant throughout our police forces, our trans siblings can walk into any bathroom, global warming isn’t treated as a myth.... the list goes on. This administration has told a lot of lies, but if you’ve ever heard your vote doesn’t matter then that’s the biggest lie there is. So make your voting plan, talk to your friends and family about theirs and vote like it’s as fun as eating Takis in bed or a night in Vegas- because there’s nothing sweeter than taking back your liberty, baby.

Voting can be a 𝔭𝔯𝔢𝔠𝔞𝔯𝔦𝔬𝔲𝔰 experience. Turns out some vote by mail ballots don't show up to your home, like in my case this year! 𝓢𝓸, 𝔀𝓱𝓪𝓽 𝓭𝓲𝓭 𝓘 𝓭𝓸? I put on my mask, placed my voter guide in my handy dandy VOTE purse and drove my ass down to my local polling location to request a ballot and VOTED. It may not be as easy as we want it to be, but even a complicated journey to having your vote counted is a journey worth embarking on. Vote in person if you haven’t yet voted, or drop your mail in ballot at your local ballot box (don't mail it now as it may not get there on time to be counted!). Your voice matters. Your vote is valid. And I am wishing you all the strength in fighting any battles on your vote 2020 journey!

I vote because I love my country. From my friends and family members who live here, to my neighbors and millions of people I don’t know, I love the citizens here. This year I’ve been so stressed and anxious from politics alone. This post isn’t about telling you to vote for, it’s about telling you to vote PERIOD. I want to know that whatever the outcome is, we raised our voices and spoke up for what we wanted. And if change is what you want, nothing will change unless you take action. So please, if you are old enough, please get out there and speak up. P.S. I’m so grateful to have been able to vote because it wasn’t too long ago women didn’t even have those rights.. (see what happens when we demand change? 😜☺️) 🙏🏼 🇺🇸❤️🤍💙 Demi Lovato (opens in new tab)

The face of a Texas resident who’s absentee ballot was never delivered to where I’m going to be working on Election Day. The election board could see it was sent out Oct 8th, but it’s never been found or delivered. Luckily we have early voting in Texas which, while making my voting plan I didn’t know. So everyday, as my time to leave Texas to go work for a few weeks comes closer, no ballot, no ballot, no ballot. So today, I had to go to the Election Board, cancel my absentee ballot and go vote early. They told me with that cancelled ballot form I could go vote in person. When I arrived to vote in person with the form and my ID the poll worker told me I could only vote provisionally. A provisional ballot is “ok” but it’s only counted in a close race. I want my vote counted period, end of story. Provisional is better than not voting but not ideal. Due to different computer systems at election board & polling station my newly canceled absentee ballot had not registered on polling site system when I went to vote. In fact, they said I would have to wait until the computer system updated my newly cancelled absentee ballot status, and I “should” be able to vote. Hell no I thought. So I called the election board back and they were able to process it by end of day so I could go back to vote in person for sure. The point is it took me like 4 hours to make sure my vote would count. How many others absentee ballots are lost? I encourage you to go to your counties election website and see what to do and if you can cancel it and vote early if possible. Thanks to all the election board and poll workers who helped me!! It’s not their fault but this system they are trying to work is hard so keep the faith & vote!! Love Y’all! Jonathan Van Ness (opens in new tab)

WE Voted!! This is a year of wokeness and understanding that we have to be the change we want to see. "We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody,I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And he's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land". ~MLK The vision and potential of this country cannot happen with complacency and/or apathy.💛 Vote! Like your very breath depends on it 💛💛🙏🏿🙏🏿VOTE! VOTE!!

I voted absentee last week with my daughter next to me, for an America I want her to see; but not just for us- for fellow Americans that are less privileged, with hope for a nation that is unified, that is empathetic, & for a leader that is compassionate. YOU HAVE A WEEK AND A HALF 🗳 IF YOU’RE VOTING EARLY IM PROUD OF YOU. IF YOU MAILED IN YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT I’M PROUD OF YOU. (&& if you dropped it off at your County’s Board of Elections Office or at an Early Polling Site I’m proud of you!!) IF YOU’RE GOING TO THE POLLS ON NOVEMBER 3RD I’M PROUD OF YOU.

For helpful voting information state by state check out http://nbcnews.com/PlanYourVote now I want to see all y’all put on your best hat and get out the vote!!! Pics or it didn’t happen!!! This election is imperative, we must save our country from dictatorship. Seriously!!! Vote vote vote! And plz make sure you read all the specific rules and regulations pertaining to your ballots in your state, so you’re voting safely and legally and not say in some random ass jenky ass metal box the GOP has been illegally setting up (yes, that’s really happening 🙄 ) I love you now vote vote vote!!! Also this post was amended because I had people concerned about me posting my ballot showing I voted for joe and kamala. Actually, IT IS legal in California to do a “ballot selfie” AND it’s legal many other states, but I wouldn’t want to mislead anyone in the states where it’s still a tricky gray area SO THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP!
