Judging by social media, Hollywood hit the polls hard today — celebrities from Sarah Jessica Parker to Jennifer Garner and many, many more proudly shared selfies to document an important civic duty: voting.
Many public figures (including celebrities) have mobilized in recent weeks to remind people how voting can affect change. And in addition to talking the talk, they are walking the walk. Proof? All of these beautiful post-voting selfies complete with “I Voted” stickers, of course.
Actor Zendaya shared a video on Instagram of herself doing what could possibly be described as a happy dance with her sticker.
Reese Witherspoon looked predictably picture-perfect in her selfie, which she simply captioned, “I Voted! How about you?!”
Emily Blunt & John Krasinski
The couple that votes together stays together! Husband-and-wife duo Emily Blunt and John Krasinski couldn’t possibly be any cuter holding up their ballots.
Rocking a “Never the less, she voted” T-shirt the day before the midterms, actor Zooey Deschanel made her intent to vote abundantly clear.
Sarah Jessica Parker
SJP wore her voting heart on her sleeve — quite literally. The actor posted a video on her Instagram feed showing an “I am a voter” pin attached to a white sweatshirt with the same phrase written along the front and down the sleeve. In the caption, she vowed “neither snow nor rain” would keep her from the polling place.
In her typical authentic and inherently charming way, Drew Barrymore let her “I Voted” sticker do the talking for her in a makeup-free voting selfie.
Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
https://www.instagram.com/p/BpRyHBpgS3J/Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds celebrated his birthday in late October with a voting party. The pair posted pics on social media showing off their absentee ballots.
Actor and director Judy Greer shared in an Instagram Story that she had voted, and she also shared information about how to vote in a separate post.
Olivia Wilde shared a snapshot of herself posing beside an arrow pointing toward the polls and a wall mural reading, “Be awesome today.” Her take? “Go be awesome and VOTE YOU FRIGGIN FACE OFF!”
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who watches his late-night show that Seth Meyers showed up to vote. The funnyman brought along his wife, Alexi, and son, Axel — who Meyers joked was “disappointed because he thought we were going to ‘boat.’”
JT shared his voting selfie on Saturday when he mailed in his absentee ballot and took the time to caution against (illegal!) voting booth selfies.
No scandal here! Kerry Washington looked both chic and relaxed showing off her “I Voted” sticker. “I did it! Felt sooooo good,” she gushed.

I voted early. It was honestly so much fun. So poignant. I went skipping down the street singing afterward. No joke! • Today is your day. Our day. Make it count. • If you have questions, or are turned away (DO NOT LEAVE!!) call: English: 866-OUR-VOTE Spanish: 888-VE-Y-VOTA Arabic: 844-YALLA-US Asian/Pacific Languages: 888-API-VOTE American Sign Language: 301-818-VOTE • If you need to know where your polling place is? Text WHERE to 97779 to find out! • @cleowade reminded me that: the destiny of this country is not determined by our thoughts and prayers, but our actions and deeds. Vote Because “Faith without works is dead.” Vote Because The arc of the universe is long and WE must bend it toward justice. Vote Because The opposite of justice is not injustice, it is inaction, indifference and apathy. Vote Because “if there is no struggle there is no progress.” Vote Because there can be no harvest of blessings without tilling the soil, planting the seeds and doing the work. #Vote #GOTV #WhenWeAllVote #IAmAVoter

“Mankind — that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests…We're fighting for our right to live, to exist… ‘We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive!’” -President Thomas J. Whitmore, “Independence Day,” 1996. TODAY, EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE: VOTE!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

“I’m seeing a lot of underestimation of young voters in this new generation who now have the right to vote in the last couple of years. But these are people who grew up post-9/11. They grew up with school shooting drills at their schools. These are people who want to vote. It’s not enough to just want change,” Taylor Swift said in her Instagram Stories. “It’s not enough to just want to vote. You have to go and make change by voting.”
