Taylor Swift shares a message encouraging people to vote on Super Tuesday.

Super Tuesday is here, and Taylor Swift is using her massive platform to encourage people to exercise their right to vote. The pop star, who has 282 million followers on Instagram, posted a message on her stories reminding people that today is the presidential primary for more than a dozen states. She urged her followers to vote for the candidates who best represent their values and included a link to vote.org for information on polling stations and hours.

Fifteen states are holding GOP primaries or caucuses on Super Tuesday, including Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia. In addition, Alaska and Utah are holding caucuses. Eleven of these states have open primaries, meaning that voters do not have to be registered Republicans to participate.

Former President Donald Trump is the leading contender against former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley in the Republican nomination race. All of these states, except Alaska, will also hold Democratic primaries. American Samoa, a U.S. territory, will hold Democratic caucuses, with President Joe Biden as the leading contender for the nomination. While Iowa held its Democratic caucuses in January by mail, the results will be released on Tuesday along with the rest of the Super Tuesday states.

Swift, who previously stayed out of politics, has become more vocal in recent years, using her platform to speak out on issues such as LGBTQ rights. In 2018, she announced on social media that she was voting for Tennessee’s Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen, criticizing the Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn for her stance on LGBTQ rights and her vote against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.

In 2019, Swift again spoke out against the Trump administration for not passing a bill that would protect LGBTQ rights. She highlighted the Equality Act in the music video for her hit song “You Need to Calm Down,” and during her acceptance speech for the MTV Video Music Award for Video of the Year, she urged her fans to vote for a world where everyone is treated equally.

Super Tuesday is an important day for the future of our country, and Swift’s message serves as a reminder to use our voices and vote for the candidates who align with our values. Let’s make our voices heard and shape the future of our nation.
