More than 14 million Americans have voted so far, and with less than three weeks left until the Nov. 3 election, this year’s tallies are on track to be historic, with some states already posting 10-40 percent of the total votes counted in 2016 through a combination of absentee and in-person early voting. And, well, stars, they’re just like millions of other patriotic Americans who trust the nation’s election system: They’re getting out early too.
“Just finished filling out my ballot!” Selena Gomez wrote on Instagram Thursday (Oct. 22). In a slideshow of pics, she shows off her “I VOTED” sticker.
Mandy Moore cast her ballot, but made it fashionable, posting a short video in which she busted out her black leather Stuart Weitzman 5050 Vote boots for a walk to the mailbox as part of the #runwaytothepolls challenge to the tune of Lizzo‘s “Vote.” Meanwhile, Bebe Rexha voted and made it sexy by using her “I Voted” sticker as a pastie under a mesh top to match her red hair and blue vinyl jacket, and Joe Jonas took a post-voting selfie.
First-time voter Billie Eilish, who earlier in the month launched an initiative for other first-time vote casters, showed off a photo on Instagram Stories Oct. 17 of herself with her dog dropping her ballot into a collection box. The photo was part of her fan Q&A: A follower had asked her for “something that made you happy today,” and the 18-year-old responded with the photo and caption, “i voted!!”
Dave Matthews shared on his Dave Matthews Band Radio on SiriusXM that he and his daughters have already cast their ballots. “Election Day is really just the last day you can vote,” he pointed out. “So why not — when you have some time off — go and vote?”
Kacey Musgraves put her sticker front and center, right in the middle of her forehead with the message, “Worth the hour long line and the annoying business spreadsheet phone yeller guy behind me.” Madonna shared what she called the “3 faces of a girl who just Voted!!,” encouraging her fans to get out there and “take responsibility people!!” while hyping the Democratic Biden/Harris ticket as she rocked red hair to go with a blue shirt with a white collar.
Check out the early voting posts and pics below.

The GOP is intent on subverting democracy at every turn. They’ve intentionally broken the postal service and then tell us that even if we send our votes before Election Day they might not be counted. That’s why I put our ballots in a designated dropbox. Get your vote in early! pic.twitter.com/sRhGBhFNc6
