Kim Kardashian West's voting picture has sparked some questions on social media after she deleted her original post and reuploaded an edited version instead.

Posting on Instagram and Twitter on the day of the US presidential election, Kim posed with her voting badge, writing: "I VOTED!!!! Did you?!?!"

She also encouraged voters to stay in line at poll stations around the country, adding: "If you are in line when the hours of operation close at the polls, they are required to stay open and allow you to vote, so do not get out of line."

However, unlike her husband, who's been vocal about his intent to vote for himself and posted pictures of his ballot to prove it, Kim has remained quiet about where her own vote would be going.

This wasn't overlooked by fans on social media, who immediately began to question who Kim had voted for, and it wasn't long until some clung onto one particular detail β€” her red top.

Hours later, however, Kim had deleted the post altogether, later reuploading the same picture but this time in black and white.

Of course, people noticed what had changed and were quick to call it out.

@KimKardashian Wait why did u make it black and white?? U had a red shirt on πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… it’s okay

@KimKardashian not u reposing we all know it was a red dress

@KimKardashian The original picture ..... with the RED confidently showing.

Fans were quick to rush to Kim's defence, posting screenshots of her Twitter likes that appeared to suggest the star had voted for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

But, in yet another plot twist, it seems that Kim has since unliked those tweets...

E!

It's possible that Kim wants to remain publicly impartial to avoid an awkward situation should Trump win, and she needs him onside to continue her work on prison reform.

For what it's worth, Kim went against Trump back in 2016 and instead chose to endorse Hilary Clinton after reportedly being "on the fence" with her vote.

And just like Kim, the rest of the Kardashian/Jenners have also refused to publicly endorse a candidate, although they all encouraged people to vote regardless.
