From Kerry Washington to Reese Witherspoon to Zendaya, and many more, it seems like all of Hollywood is making their civic engagement loud and clear. Check here for all the information you need to vote in the 2020 election and click through to see which celebs who have already cast their ballots.
Lizzo rocked her best "Auntie Sam" lewk to drop off her ballot. She noted in her caption that this was her third time voting in her life and how that timeline puts things in perspective for her.
"When you think about how few and far in between that is it really puts things into perspective!" Lizzo wrote. "I believe this is the beginning of making voting ACCESSIBLE and FAIR so that this country reflects its people."
Of course, Lady Gaga brought the drama to her voting post. She exited her car and walked to the dropbox as her song "Babylon" played in the background. "Category: Ballot Drop Off Realness," she wrote.
Jennifer Aniston specifically noted that she voted for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and she opened up about exactly why.
"I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever," she wrote in her caption. "Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science... too many people have died."
She also had something to say to people who see Kanye's name on the ballot: "It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible 🙏🏼."
Model Karlie Kloss posted a picture on October 27th, clearly noting she voted blue. "What’s your voting plan? This was mine — signed, sealed, (notarized), and delivered ✅ #voteBLUE #scienceoverfiction," she wrote in her caption. If that wasn't clear enough, she also wore a Joe Biden and Kamala Harris face mask.
Kloss is married to Josh Kushner, Jared Kushner's brother, who is married to Ivanka Trump, but she has publicly voted Democratic, supporting Hillary Clinton in 2016.
"I vote because I love my country," Demi Lovato began in her Instagram post showing pictures of her voting early, in person.
"This post isn’t about telling you to vote for, it’s about telling you to vote PERIOD," she added. "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."
Katy Perry dressed up as human "I Voted" sticker to submit her ballot to an official drop off-box. In her caption, she asked followers to show her their vote "glow" and she'll share it. "DO IT FOR THE STICKER (AND DEMOCRACY)," she added.
Zoë Kravitz absolutely schooled us all with her voting post. Along with a kissy faced ballot selfie, she wrote: "so. a lot of you have been asking me about my skin care routine: i start by voting as early as possible for #joebiden and #kamalaharris and all the other democratic candidates. then try some eye cream if you haven't been sleeping well because the president is a racist."
Reese Witherspoon is a constant inspiration, so it's really no surprise that her voting post got us all pumped up. Along with a sunny ballot selfie, she wrote: "I did it! Did you? Feels good to exercise my right to VOTE. I like to think that ray of light coming through the trees 🌅is ALL of the women who came before me who did not have this fundamental right."
Witherspoon also told followers to text her photos of their "I Voted" stickers at 615-235-5390—and, yes, we will be doing this.
To the sounds of Lizzo's homemade voting anthem beat, Sarah Hyland took on the #runwaytothepolls challenge, all decked out in voting-themed gear. She also shared this important reminder: "Remember that voting doesn’t start Nov 3rd, it ENDS Nov 3rd. Vote early if you can!!!"
Hyland's "Vote Them Out" T-shirt, which features a design referencing the late RBG's iconic collar, made it clear that the Modern Family star definitely did not cast her vote for Trump and Pence.
Viola shared a smiley selfie with husband Julius Tennon to announce, "WE Voted!!" She empasized the importance of casting a vote in the 2020 election writing, "This is a year of wokeness and understanding that we have to be the change we want to see."
She also included a Martin Luther King Jr. quote about the difficult days that remain ahead and brought the message home with her own words of hope. "The vision and potential of this country cannot happen with complacency and/or apathy," she wrote. "Vote! Like your very breath depends on it."
Sarah Michelle Gellar
"I used my greatest superpower. I voted," the Buffy The Vampire Slayer icon wrote. "I voted because, I believe being a woman is not a pre-existing condition. I voted because, I believe it’s a woman decision what she does with her body. I voted, because I believe human rights, are for everyone , regardless of gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity. I voted, because I believe in science. I voted, because this disease is real and I’ve watched people die. Stand up for what you believe in and please vote."
Like the powerful trendsetter she is, Michelle Obama shared her voting announcement selfie and started an Instagram challenge to encourage people to get their friends to vote. "Tag three friends to join your #VotingSquad and remind them to make a plan to vote at whenweallvote.org," she wrote.
She also reminded people voting by mail not to wait "even a minute" to mail in their ballot. "Or you can drop it off at a ballot drop box or vote early in person," she wrote.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Blake Lively shared an adorable photo of her and husband Ryan Reynolds (who was voting for the first time in a U.S. election) with their mail in ballots. "It was Ryan’s first time," she wrote. "He was understandably scared. It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast. He wept. I pretended to weep. Then he called all his friend."
She also gave a gentle push to her followers with the hashtag "#voteearly."
Selena Gomez has never looked so proud as she does in her voting announcement post. "Just finished filling out my ballot!" she wrote, alongside a smiling selfie with her "I Voted" sticker and an image of her going through the steps.
The photo of Gomez working on her ballot also shows her talking to someone on speaker phone, which is a great reminder for voters to call on friends or mentors if you need some voting guidance.
On Thursday, Natalie Portman posted an "I Voted" sticker selfie picture and shared some important early voting deadlines. Portman, who has been using her Instagram to support social justice movements throughout quarantine, has also made it clear that she supports #bidenharris2020. (She even shared this this throwback selfie with Kamala Harris.)
Tracee Ellis Ross
Elizabeth Banks used her voting announcement post as an opportunity for a short musical number, asking her followers "Guys have you voted yet or what?" and then singing out, "Because I voted."
She also shared that she made a plan and voted early, plus she said exactly who she voted for. "Also, I don’t mind telling you I voted #bidenharris2020," she wrote.
Like Ellis Ross, Washington proudly took on Michelle Obama's voting challenge and challenged Kourtney Kardashian, Sterling Brown, and Mariah Carey to vote early. Though her human friends couldn't vote with her, Washington shared that her dog tagged along. "#JosieB is helping me vote early and is coming with me to the ballot box for moral support," she wrote.
Washington has also made it clear that she's voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris—and she even spoke at an event for the Democratic nominees this past week.
Ashlee Simpson Ross
Ashlee Simpson Ross went out and voted for two: herself and her baby on the way. She also gave a nudge of encouragement to her followers, proving that if she could go vote with her pregnant belly and slippers on, they could too. "Get out and vote! No Excuses!" she wrote.
If Zendaya votes, it's officially cool. The Euphoria star shared a video to her Instagram Stories on Thursday showing her and her assistant Darnell Appling with their mail-in ballots.
The Emmy-winning actress added the update to her "VOTE" Instagram Story archives, which also features a slide with a "Register To Vote" button link and Zendaya's advice to "Do that shit."
Naturally, Salma Hayek voting post included a stunner selfie, but it wasn't about the modelesque shot. Her message was clear: "#votingmatters."
Hayek was a vocal democrat in the 2016 election, helping launch a "Latinos For Hillary" campaign, and even shared a story of her own about Trump's predatory advances. So, there's a good chance she's on board the #VoteHimOut train this year.
Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren are politically engaged mom and dad goals. "Mom & Dad over here feeling productive," The L.A.'s Finest star wrote alongside a selfie of her and Warren wearing "I Voted" stickers. "Even if voting is the only thing you do in a day, you’re able to feel like you did something major! It’s pretty amazing! GO VOTE!!!"
While, she didn't share her exact ballot details, the message about her leanings made it pretty clear she didn't vote for a certain someone in office. "We believe in fairness, equality, and treating people with dignity. We are black and brown entrepreneurs. We are proud Americans. As importantly, we love being part of the GLOBAL Community. We believe in protecting our planet. We believe in helping those in need. We hate racists w a passion. Vote for BASIC HUMAN DECENCY. Our leadership needs to reflect that. Period." she wrote.
Busy Philipps is rocking the vote and a hot pink power suit. Along with her mail-in ballot (which she cast from her bed), Philipps focused on the importance and prevalence of women voters. "Women Are Voting. Millions of women across the country are committed to casting our ballots to show the world we are unstoppable," she wrote." She also encouraged others to use the #womenarevoting hashtag and to purchase her pink suit and Supermajority pin (which you can shop here!) to benefit the organization's efforts to "build a powerful, diverse, women-led future where we are truly equal."
Like Sarah Hyland, Mandy Moore mastered the #runwaytothepolls challenge, showing off some enviable "VOTE" boots, an "I am a voter" T-shirt, and a fierce power walk.
Moore also shared a post in a pink Supermajority suit like Philipps', showing her support for women voters across the country. The This Is Us actress didn't share her voting details in her post, but she's been a known Democrat and has joined in fundraising efforts for Biden's campaign this year.
Lily Collins has a relationship secret for all the couples out there: "Couples who vote together, stay together." The Emily in Paris star posted a ballot selfie of her and fiancé Charlie McDowell and shared that they were voting early by mail.
She also added this advice to California voters: "If you’re voting by mail in California, make sure your ballot is postmarked before Election Day and sign up to track your ballot."
Madelaine Petsch kept her voting post short and sweet, sharing a mirror selfie with her ballot and a simple "vote" in the caption. The only thing better than her encouraging her followers to be participate in the 2020 election is that red French tip manicure.
Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale posted about voting while she was out of the country.
"had a minor freak out bc im out of the country until after the election- but got my ballot overnighted to where I’m at to immediately be shipped back to the States," she wrote in her "I Voted" sticker pic caption. "Whatever you do, find a way to vote if you’re eligible."
Vanessa Hudgens kept her voting selfie simple by putting her sticker on the back of her phone and snapping a quick mirror pic.
"Done. Did. Have you? #VOTE 🙏🏽," she wrote in the caption.
The Kissing Booth star voted early at an official ballot drop-box wearing a "Vote" mask. She also had a new bob haircut, which is really just the icing on the cake of her big citizenship day.
Halle Berry was specific in her caption that the 2020 election isn't just about choosing a president. Local elections matter and they play a huge role in the future.
"VOTE. Vote EARLY. #Vote for the presidency but also for the local officials and measures that will create the world you want to see," Berry wrote.
We tip our hat to Beyoncé, who voted for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris today, November 2nd, according to her Biden-Harris face mask.
"Come thru, Texas!" Beyoncé urged her fellow Texas natives to vote blue in the election. Texas is a historically red state, but in 2016, President Trump won by a fairly slim margin—52.2% to 43.2%. The hope is that the state could go blue with the majority voting for Biden.
Jennifer Lopez #GotLoud and completed her civic duty earlier today, November 3rd.
"¡Yo voté! ❤️🤍💙 ¡Vamos America!" Lopez captioned her voting day Instagram, translating it to English, "I voted! Let’s go America!" She also shared that she voted for Joe Biden by using the #BidenHarris2020 hashtag.
