Rihanna, John Legend & More Stars Urge Fans to Register to Vote: 'VOTE Like Our Future Depends on It!'
After Taylor Swift broke her political silence on Instagram over the weekend by sharing her views and the specific candidates that she will vote for, Vote.org reported a significant increase in voter registration, citing 65,000 new registrations within the 24-hour period after her post. Other stars are using their platforms to speak out too, encouraging their massive followings to let their voices be heard by registering to vote in the upcoming midterms.
Check out some of the big names -- including Rihanna, John Legend, Ludacris, Paramore's Hayley Williams and more -- who took to Twitter to inspire their fans to register before the deadlines.
