Ariana Grande performs onstage during the Songwriters Hall of Fame 49th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner at New York Marriott Marquis Hotel on June 14, 2018 in New York City. 

Ariana Grande has her fans ready to head to the polls this November.

The songstress shared the deadlines in every state to register to vote via her Instagram story, and provided a swipe up link directly to the March For Our Lives website. Within just 30 minutes, the site crashed from the influx of Arianators registering to vote. 

Grande's post comes as part of MFOL's Turnout Tuesdays, where every Tuesday leading up to the Nov. 6 election, the organization is issuing a call to action to youth across the United States.

This isn't the first time recently a celebrity has caused a surge of voters. Vote.org told Billboard that Taylor Swift's Instagram post in support of U.S. Senate candidate Phil Bredesen and incumbent U.S. House member Rep. Jim Cooper "significantly" drove up voter registration among 18- to 29-year-olds in a two-day period.
