National Voter Registration Day: Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift and More Stars Encourage Fans to Vote

September 22, 2020

With the presidential election less than two months away, celebrities like Hailey Bieber, Faith Hill and more are providing resources for followers who want to vote.

It's almost time to rock the vote.

With the presidential election quickly approaching, many celebrities are speaking out on National Voter Registration Day and encouraging their fans to get involved in Decision 2020. 

On Tuesday, Sept. 22, Kerry Washington grabbed the attention of followers when she shared a steamy gif from her ABC series. "SCANDAL THE MOVIE," she wrote on Instagram. "Link in bio for more info…" 

That link turned out to be the site of When We All Vote, a non-profit, nonpartisan organization that is on a mission to increase participation in every election.

Taylor Swift offered up resources to her fans on Instagram Stories and expressed her thoughts on just how crucial it is to have your voice heard. "We need everyone and it is more important than I could ever possibly say," she explained.

And fresh off her lit 2020 Emmys appearance, Jennifer Aniston offered helpful links on her Instagram Stories including the option to register to vote. "Do it for RBG," she wrote while paying tribute to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who passed away on Sept. 18.

Kate Hudson: "Gonna make sure this firecracker of a young lady has her rights protected. Mama cub is out! It's National Voter Registration Day. VOTE #nationalvoterregistrationday #vote." 

Jenna Ushkowitz: "#MyFirstTime was when I was 18! I remember going into my school gym with my mother and father (which was our polling place) and being excited & nervous to vote. Growing up being taught about women's suffrage and knowing women had to fight hard to get the right to vote, I think I felt compelled to vote in their honor. I understood the importance of my voice and I was taught that every vote counted. The election was George W. Bush and John Kerry. I was excited to be able to exercise my right for the first time and even better, an election year was the year I turned 18! I was nervous because I didn't know what I was doing and I didn't want to mess up. It seemed such a daunting task with some unfamiliar names that I was supposed to vote for. (I was then told I didn't have to vote for a candidate if it was unfamiliar or I didn't know.) Is this your first time voting? Are you registered to vote? If you haven't, go to LetsRegisterNow.com to do it in two minutes. Then tag me in your #myfirsttime post so I can hear your story. #nationalvoterregistrationday"

This was 2008. I was 19, so it was the first presidential year I was eligible to vote. I was working for Nickelodeon at the time, part of their show called Kids Pick the President. We spoke to people about the vote and how kids could get involved. I had done a lot of research, asked a lot of questions. That Election Day, it truly felt like I had just been part of history.⠀ ⠀ Today is #NationalVoterRegistrationDay, and I’m encouraging all of you guys to make a plan to vote. If you care about peace, equality, women’s rights, education, free speech… VOTE! Your voice does matter, even in all of this noise…
