"I got to vote for Bernie again and I did," Dawson, 40, said in a Tuesday message on Instagram.

"Whoever it is that you’re supporting I hope that you are doing it consciously, with heart and with a ballot," she added, urging Americans to register to vote.

"Turn out needs to be historic to drive home the message that we stand for something bigger and better than what we have now," Dawson wrote. The performer campaigned for Sanders during his 2016 presidential bid.

Dawson, who confirmed she was dating Booker last year, supported the 50-year-old senator’s White House campaign, hitting the trail with him in Iowa in December.

When Booker dropped out of the presidential race earlier this year, Dawson wrote on Twitter, "Cory, you continue to inspire me everyday. On this journey you and your remarkable team have represented the best in us and I know you will continue to."
