The Obama campaign, as part of its push in support of early voting, is offering an “I voted” badge to add to any Twitter user’s avatar, which Judd re-tweeted. The president and first lady, who both voted early, are also using the badge.
Monáe, who tweeted earlier in the day that she “can’t sleep” due to anxiety about the election, is re-tweeting responses to the sentence “I'm voting for President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaJudge denies Trump spokesman's effort to force Jan. 6 committee to return financial records Gina McCarthy: Why I'm more optimistic than ever on tackling the climate crisis The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Facebook - Biden talks, Senate balks MORE because [insert your reason].”

And Justin Bieber, who is headlining a concert Monday in Washington, D.C., reminded his nearly 30 million Twitter followers that Tuesday is Election Day.
DC tonight! day before the election. #BELIEVEtour— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) November 5, 2012
Bieber, a Canadian citizen, is not eligible to vote in the U.S. election.
Singer-songwriter Neil Diamond was also working on getting out the vote for Obama over the weekend. He tweeted that he was making calls from a phone bank.
Not all the tweets were partisan, though. Much like MTV's celebrity-promoted Rock the Vote campaign, many celebrities on Monday just urged followers to take their voting rights seriously...or not so seriously, perhaps, when it comes to stars such as Neil Patrick Harris.
Please please vote tomorrow. And spend some time educating yourself to make informed choices. It’s your civic duty. Heee. I said duty.— Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH) November 5, 2012
