Taylor Swift on National Voter Registration Day: ‘We need everyone’
Taylor Swift is urging her fans to register to vote and head to the polls on Nov. 3, saying “it is more important than I can even possibly say.”
The “Cardigan” singer posted on her Instagram story on Tuesday, National Voter Registration Day, a series of resources for voters.
The election, the 30-year-old singer said, is “really coming up.”
“I’ve put together a swipe up of resources,” Swift continued. “You can register if you’re a first-time voter, you can check your registration, you can request an absentee ballot, you can figure out the process of voting early.”
“We need everyone, and it is more important than I can even possibly say,” added Swift, who has more than 140 million Instagram followers.
The performer broke her virtually career-long silence on politics back in 2018, endorsing former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) over then-Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) in the state’s Senate race. Swift has since been an outspoken critic of President Trump, calling him an “ineffective” leader against the coronavirus pandemic and accusing him of trying to “blatantly cheat” his way to a reelection.
