Anne Hathaway, Taylor Swift, Cameron Diaz, Justin Theroux, Neil Patrick Harris, Mariska Hargitay, Kelly Ripa and more led the pack of A-list stars who hit the polls to do their civic duty on Tuesday — and they documented it on social media.
While being a star often means jet-setting around the globe, that didn’t stop Theroux, 45, from taking part in this year’s election. The actor sent in his vote all the way from Berlin, Germany.
“Vote=rocked,” he captioned a shot of himself holding up his absentee ballot.
⚡️Vote=rocked.⚡️ 🤘🏽📩📬🇺🇸 #berlin Oh!

Karlie Kloss also did her part while on the job, filling out her ballot in a dressing room.
“One of the greatest privileges we have as Americans is a voice,” she wrote. “I’m proud to say I did my part, now it’s your turn.”
Others made their way to local voting booths. And with many voting locations opening as early as 6 a.m., they wasted no time getting in line to cast their votes.
Swift snapped a photo of herself in line.
“Today is the day,” she wrote as she pointed to the “voters entrance” sign, though she didn’t reveal her choice. (And voters really, really want to know — she’s the top search result on Google Trends.)
” ‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.’ – Martin Luther King Jr.” wrote Harris, while pointing to his sticker.
Hathaway even offered to help people find voting polls nearby. “Check the link in my bio to find out where to vote,” she wrote.
A lot of other celebs followed suit, showing off their own participation and encouraging others to exercise their civic duty.
Ripa’s voting day was extra special, as she not only lent her vote to the candidate of her choice, but she also watched her son Michael Joseph Consuelos vote for the very first time.
“Nothing like the feeling of witnessing your child vote for the first time. Nothing. MAKE IT COUNT!,” she captioned a selfie with her son.
“Baby girl’s first election. It’s a cool time to be alive,” she wrote, adding #tearsofjoy.
In a video, Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus shared, “This nasty woman just voted today, before going to work. And I voted for Hillary Clinton. I’m hoping that you will vote today and you will stay in line, no matter how long it is. It was a long line for me this morning. And when you vote, vote for Hillary.”
Louis-Dreyfus donned a “Nasty Woman” shirt in the Instagram clip.
