Rihanna called on election officials to “count every vote” as multiple states had yet to be called the day after Election Day. 

The singer and fashion and makeup mogul shared on her Instagram page in six separate posts on Wednesday, “Count every vote we’ll wait.” She also shared the message on Twitter. 

President Trump’s campaign announced Wednesday that it would sue to stop ballot counting in the critical battleground states of Michigan and Pennsylvania until Republican observers were granted further access to watch the opening of ballots. The president’s campaign has also pledged to demand a recount of ballots in Wisconsin.

Late Wednesday, Trump’s campaign also joined Georgia Republicans in a lawsuit aimed at sequestering absentee ballots in the state’s Chatham County. 

The Associated Press has called Michigan for Democratic nominee Joe Biden. It has not called races in Pennsylvania or Georgia, although the president is leading the former vice president in both states.

A slate of other celebrities also took to social media to call on voters to be patient as ballots continue to be counted. Producer Shonda Rhimes tweeted that “Waiting is hard, but democracy is worth waiting for.”
