Justin Bieber has added his voice to the dozens of high-profile celebrities urging their fans to vote in the upcoming U.S. midterm elections on Nov. 6.
"Living in the US I see how this country affects not only people here but all around the world," Bieber wrote on Twitter. "There are so many things people need help with that I hope all of you who can get out and Vote and make your voices heard," adding with a smiley face emoticon: "I would if I could."
As a Canadian citizen, Bieber is unable to participate in the American election process. This year's elections will be on Nov. 6 and will influence many key issues in a particularly contentious political climate. The midterm elections are the most significant opportunity the average citizen has to participate in the political process before the next presidential election in 2020.
