Taylor Swift Just Launched A Page Full Of Voting Resources On Instagram, And It's So Useful
"We need everyone. And it is more important than I can even possibly say."
"Hey guys, it's National Voter Registration Day today. The election is Nov. 3," she said in a video posted to her Instagram story this afternoon. "It's really coming up."
Taylor then urged her 140 million Instagram followers to ~swipe up~ on her story, which would bring them to a special page created by Swift, full of helpful information for voters.
"We need everyone," she concluded. "And it is more important than I can even possibly say."
This is not the first time Taylor has used her platform to get young people to the polls. In 2018, after breaking her political silence in a viral Instagram post, she created a huge spike in voter registrations for Vote.org. There were 65,000 signups within the first 24 hours after her post — that's more registrations than Vote.org had in the entire month of August of that year.
"Thank god for Taylor Swft," a representative for Vote.org said at the time.
