10 Celebs who went above and beyond to rock the vote (PHOTOS)

Sarah grew up in Monterey, CA and now lives in Los Angeles. When she's not writing, you can find her enjoying a good book, fine wine, sunflowers and long walks on the beach.

Did you vote today? These celebs go extreme to make sure their voices are heard

Turn out for what? To vote!

Kendall Jenner is rocking the vote (VIDEO)

With so many scandals involving famous people nowadays, it's refreshing when stars get out there and do something positive. These celebs are proving that they are more than just pretty faces and that they care about real issues that affect not only them, but everybody else.

1. Lil Jon

Lil Jon wins the most dedicated award for the 2014 election. The rapper woke up extra early on Tuesday morning to catch a flight from Los Angeles to his home base of Atlanta, Georgia, because he never received his absentee ballot. "U CANT DISCOURAGE ME!" he wrote in the caption. "#VOTETODAY @TURNOUTFORWHAT #ROCKTHEVOTE."

2. Alicia Silverstone

The Clueless star walked in the snow, uphill both ways, to cast her ballot. OK, maybe it wasn't that dramatic, but Silverstone did put in some effort to get out there and she felt really good about herself when she was done.

3. Lena Dunham

Dunham's got a lot of personal drama going on right now, but she can rest assured that she has fulfilled her civic duty: She sent in her absentee ballot last week!

4. Nikki Reed

Reed keeps a special reminder to stand up for her rights year-round. "I carry these stickers in my wallet," the actress wrote in a caption on Instagram early this week. "Want to know why??? Because it reminds me that I have a voice... we all have a voice... it's about using it where it counts."

5. Ian Somerhalder

Reed's beau is known to be politically active himself, especially when it comes to environmental issues, and today was no different. He hopped aboard a plane very early Tuesday morning and made it known that he would be waiting in line to vote, as well.

Watching this beautiful sun come up over Georgia-I just spent 25 minutes crafting a post that I thought was what I needed to say but my phone died and that message unfortunately disappeared... Let me simply start over and say, good morning America. Today is the day that we get to make our voices heard. I just received a message that struck a chord and this is how I feel about it. I realize that If I don't vote today, I'm letting someone else decide the future for me. I'm letting someone else pick a reality that will shape my life for two years. I am simply not willing to let that happen . Today is just that day. Get out there and VOTE. I'll be in line. Letting my voice say that that women are a force of sublime nature, that children and education are our future, that destroying our environment so that we and the creatures that live in it cant survive is not acceptable. We need people in offices that will not only govern but innovate. Please put these people in these positions and make our communities, our state and our country a better place to live.Thank you. Ian

6. Jason Mraz

The "I'm Yours" singer has donated his time and talents to HeadCount, an organization that inspires "participation in democracy through the power of music."

7. Rob Lowe

Rob Lowe is also involved with HeadCount and he's also the proud papa of a first-time voter! Lowe shared a cute photo of his son, Johnny, casting his first ballot ever.

8. Olivia Wilde

Wilde is so passionate about Proposition 47 in California, which involves lessening non-violent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors, that she donned a T-shirt to support the measure.

9. Margaret Cho

Like Wilde, Cho is passionate about Proposition 47 and she also partnered with HeadCount. The comedienne tweeted about both.

10. Kate Hudson

So, maybe Hudson doesn't have a crazy voting story, but she sure looked adorable doing it.

Dotted and delivered! #EveryVoteCounts
