On Tuesday, Taylor Swift, 33, used her platform to encourage Swifties to register to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.
The superstar took to Instagram, where she has 272 million followers, to post a statement on her Instagram Stories. “Are you registered to vote yet?” the singer-songwriter wrote.
“I’ve been so lucky to see so many of you at my US shows recently,” she continued, referring to her Eras Tour, which recently wrapped up its first leg of North American dates in August. “I’ve heard you raise your voices, and I know how powerful they are. Make sure you’re ready to use them in our elections this year!”
The “Cruel Summer” artist concluded by writing, “Register to vote in less than 2 minutes at vote.org/nvrd.”
The link continues to vote.org’s Everything You Need to Vote page where voters can sign up, check their registration, request an absentee ballot, receive election reminders and check the registration deadlines in their state.
It’s not the first time Swift has called on her fans to get to the polls. In July, she encouraged her fans in Nashville to take part in voting for the city’s mayoral election.
"Hi Nashville! Early voting for our city officials and some statewide seats begins today," the “Anti-Hero” wrote on her Instagram Story at the time, while sharing a selfie in which she was holding an “I voted today” sticker.
"We have the opportunity to choose those who will represent us for the next four years," the Grammy winner continued. "I voted today and I urge each and every one of you to do the same and make your voice heard."
The Nashville election was highly contested, as it followed Tennessee’s recent controversial legislation, including a law restricting drag shows that was later declared as unconstitutional. The election was held on Aug. 3 and continued with a run-off on Sept. 14, declaring progressive candidate Freddie O'Connell as the winner, per Associated Press.
In 2020, too, the pop star spoke out about the importance of Swifties casting their ballots.
Swift has been vocal about her political views since 2018 when she endorsed Phil Bredesen, the Democratic candidate for Senate in Tennessee.
Since then, she has also used her platform to fight against racial injustice and in support of LGBTQ+ rights.
In 2019, she shared a copy of a powerful letter she had written to Republican Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander, urging him to support the Equality Act, which would prevent discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
“While we have so much to celebrate, we also have a great distance to go before everyone in this country is truly treated equally,” Swift told fans when she shared the letter, asking them to write to their representatives, as well.
The concert film version of her record-breaking tour, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, will soon head to theaters on Oct. 13. The pop sensation will then head out on the international leg of her live show starting in November with dates in Latin America.
