10 Celebs who went above and beyond to rock the vote (PHOTOS)
Turn out for what? To vote!
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.
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.
