Whether it's a sticker, a selfie or a strut to the mailbox, here's how Madonna, Kerry Washington and more stars are celebrating doing their civic duty ahead of the presidential election between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and Republican incumbent Donald Trump next month.

Mom Alba and dad Cash Warren are "feeling productive" after exercising their civic duty early!

"Guys, have you voted yet or what?" Banks asked her followers before singing a little tune about voting.

Faith Hill and Tim McGraw

Voting early is a a family affair for Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, who exercised their right to vote alongside their daughter, Audrey.

Reese Witherspoon

What? Like voting early is hard? Reese Witherspoon showed off her mail-in ballot envelope on Instagram, captioning the her selfie, "I did it! Did you?" and adding, "Feels good to exercise my right to VOTE."

Whoopi Goldberg

Goldberg walked her followers through filling out an absentee ballot in an effort to make sure that they don't forget a few pivotal things (like to sign and date the envelope and not forgetting a stamp).

Mae Whitman

The Parenthood actress posted a video on Instagram, proudly adorning herself with her 'I Voted' sticker, captioning the clip, "WELP I STRAPPED ON MY PEARLS AND MY SUNDAY BEST AND VOTED EARLY BY DROPPING OFF MY MAIL IN BALLOT AT A SECURE LEGAL DROP OFF BOX AND IT WAS SO SEXY AND GOOD MY FRIENDS!" The actress then added some helpful voting information for her followers and encouraged them to head to the polls.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star posted a photo of the line to vote early, telling her followers that it "wrapped around the building!!" She added, "But guess what my ass ain't going nowhere!!! COME ON GUYS let's do our part!!"

Sasheer Zamata

Nothing funny about this Saturday Night Live cast member's right to vote! Zamata captioned a photo of her dropping off her ballot, "Just over here participating in democracy, hope you do the same ✌🏾 ." She advised, "And if you’re mailing your vote in, make sure you drop it off at an official ballot box or polling location (should be listed online or on your ballot materials), because some people are putting out fake ballot boxes, LOL what a world! #vote"

Camila Morrone

The model (and Leonardo DiCaprio's girlfriend) posted a selfie wearing an "I am a voter" mask after voting early.

Madonna

Come on, Vote! Let your body move to the polls... OK, OK we'll stop. The Material Girl herself showed off her new pink locks and the rosy glow of a responsible voter in a series of selfies on Instagram after casting a vote for Biden. "The 3 faces of a girl who just Voted!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸" she captioned the photos. "Get out there and take responsibility people!! #bidenharris2020"

The new dad has at least two things in common with Madonna: he, too, has pink hair, and he voted!

Bebe Rexha

An eye-catching reminder courtesy of the "Last Hurrah" singer to get your vote in — and to proudly display your congratulatory sticker however you see fit.

Mandy Moore

The This is Us actress – who recently announced that she's expecting her first child with husband Taylor Goldsmith — pulled out all the stops in her PSA to get fans to vote early or by mail, strutting her way to her mailbox in knee-high Stuart Weitzman boots emblazoned with the word "VOTE" to send out her ballot.

The expecting star also got the next generation involved, affixing her I Voted sticker to her bump.

Lily Collins & Charlie McDowell

"Couples who vote together, stay together," the newly-engaged Emily in Paris actress captioned a photo of her and her fiancé voting early by mail.

Camila Cabello

If you had any doubt about how Cabello feels about participating in the election, she can let her mask do the talking.

Taylor Zakhar Perez

Forget about the Kissing Booth – Perez is all about the voting booth! Well, the ballot box, to be specific. The actor playfully staged an "electoral photo shoot" while dropping off his ballot. "Our votes matter and the only way to change our state/community/country is by educating ourselves with all the resources at our fingertips and committing to our our future," he wrote in part on Instagram.

Zoë Kravitz

"So. a lot of you have been asking me about my skin care routine: i start by voting as early as possible for #joebiden and #kamalaharris and all the other democratic candidates," the High Fidelity actress quipped on Instagram. For those looking for a more specific breakdown of her routine, she added, "then try some eye cream if you haven't been sleeping well because the president is a racist."

Elle Fanning

Speaking of the key to a clear complexion: see Elle Fanning's "#voteearly glow."

Tracee Ellis Ross

When Michelle Obama challenges you to do something, you accept it. The Black-ish actress snapped a selfie with her ballot before filling it out and sending it early by mail. In turn, she challenged pals Van Lathan, Dwyane Wade and Jennifer Aniston to "get their #VotingSquad together and vote early too!"

Kacey Musgraves

The country star knows voting is worth any inconvenience - even having to listen to a "business spreadsheet phone yeller guy" the entire time you wait in line.
