NEW YORK, USA – Americans headed to the polls on Tuesday, November 8 to vote at this year’s elections, which will end in either a Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump win. Stars took to social media to urge their fans to vote, and some celebrities also took some time to explain who they were voting for and why.
Clinton has so far enjoyed much support in the entertainment industry, with powerful industry names like Jay Z and Beyonce, Katy Perry, Madonna, John Legend, Lady Gaga, and Bruce Springsteen among her many supporters.
Trump’s fewer celebrity supporters include Kid Rock, Jon Voight, and Stephen Baldwin.
Let’s take a look at what the stars have posted so far:
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban posted a photo of them together.
Anne Hathaway posted on Instagram: “Today is #ElectionDay! Have you made your voice heard yet?”
She followed it up with another Instagram post why she’s voting for Hillary Clinton.
In an effort to be sensitive to the disparate beliefs and political leanings of everyone here, I have done my best to keep my posts focused on the importance of voting during this election. Until now. Yes, I am voting for a Nasty Woman. Yes, I am voting for someone who as a private citizen refused to let disabled children live a life in the shadows and fought to get them rights and representation. Yes, I am voting for the former First Lady of Arkansas who championed a program (HIPPY) which sent teachers into the homes of underprivileged families to train parents in school preparedness and literacy, a program which became a model for other states. Yes, I am voting for the former First Lady who, in 1995, when it was insanely unpopular to express feminist views, stood in front of the world and said in that particular, driven Midwestern lilt of hers “Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights.” [Now in 2016, we say “(duh) yeah” and we feel entitled to that attitude in no small part because of the truth expressed by a brave woman in power.] Yes, I am voting for the former senator from NY who worked across party lines to get first responders the support they needed long after the towers fell on that tragic day. And Yes, I am voting for the former Secretary of State who was in the room when the particular terror of Osama Bin Laden was finally, finally silenced. Yes, yes, YES I am voting for @HillaryClinton, the most qualified candidate our country has ever had the opportunity to vote for. Hill-yes #Imwithher, and I hope you are too. #VOTELIKEITMATTERSCUZITDOES

Taylor Swift – who had been silent about the election – posted a picture of herself on Instagram dressed casually as she waited in a long line at a polling station.
Although Swift – who performed at the 2008 Republican convention but generally stays out of politics – encouraged voters to come to the polls, she did not reveal her own choice.
Katy Perry, often seen as Swift’s rival, is Clinton’s self-described “number one fan.” On Election Day, she posted repeatedly on Twitter, where she has nearly 94 million followers, more than anyone else.
In one video, Perry appears with a fluffy little dog asking voters to head the polls.
She also posted a commercial for Clinton set to “Roar,” in which a diverse array of Americans sway to her blockbuster tune, urging a “vote against hate.”

Jay Z and his wife, pop diva Beyonce, led a concert for Clinton on Friday in the battleground state of Ohio. Beyonce on Tuesday posted a short, cinematic video from the show to her 88 million Instagram followers.
“So many people lost their lives for us to even have the opportunity to vote,” Jay Z said at the end of the video.
It would be a “major disservice if we don’t go out and let our voice be heard,” he added.
Rihanna also declared her Election Day support for Clinton, tweeting a selfie with a picture of the candidate on the chart-topping singer’s shirt, whose new dreadlocks dangled down.
And Colombian superstar Shakira reached out to US Latino voters, who have been particularly offended by Republican candidate Donald Trump’s fiery calls to curb immigration.
“The Latino vote can help decide the fate of a nation and the world’s,” she tweeted in English, adding, “Don’t stand still – vote now!”

Trump, who enlisted few celebrity supporters, criticized Clinton for appearing with Jay Z and Beyonce, pointing to the rapper’s use of profanity.
Trump nevertheless campaigned with hard rocker Ted Nugent, who grabbed his own genitals to illustrate his view of Democrats. – with reports from Agence France-Presse/ Rappler.com
