Dozens of celebrities are using their platforms to share information about the 2020 election.

Tuesday, November 3rd marks one of the more important Election Days in recent memory, and many members of the entertainment industry are encouraging fans to exercise their rights.

Despite a few shocking endorsements of Donald Trump from artists in recent weeks, the vast majority of music industry figures are endorsing the Democratic ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Some are going beyond the general election and endorsing Senate candidates in their home states.

Here’s a roundup of celebrities who have exercised their right to vote in the 2020 election.

Today my son @massaidorsey voted for the first time. I’m so proud of him. His ballot never showed up in the mail. He reregistered. Still no ballot. He jumped on a flight early to make sure he exercised his right to vote today. VICTORY‼️ They make it hard for us to vote and voter suppression is real. Get up and go to the polls. If your ballot never showed up and you’ve registered, go online and screen shot or print your proof of registration. Don’t let a missing ballot take you out of the game. This is the most important moment of our lives. This is the most important presidential election in American History. Don’t take no for an answer. BLACK VOTERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE‼️Thank you mommy for joining Massai this morning. #familyvoting 🦾
